Balkan Holidays’ flights are set to take off again from Teesside International

Balkan Holidays’ flights to Bourgas in Bulgaria are set to take off again, alongside JetsGo Holiday’s breaks to Majorca, which are flying from the airport for the first time next year.

Balkan Holidays has committed to twice-weekly flights running on Thursdays and Sundays from May 23 to giving holidaymakers the opportunity for seven, ten, 11 or 14-day breaks. The route launched in 2019 was paused due to the pandemic. However, its success in 2019, and Teesside Airport being the biggest selling airport for the flights prior to the outbreak this year, has led Balkan to offer this expanded service.

JetsGo’s Majorca breaks were also paused due to the pandemic, however it will be flying from Teesside to the popular Spanish island with the first flight in the service taking off on Sunday, July 25, with the final return on September 19.

Tees Valley Mayor, Ben Houchen, said: “The cancellation of our 2020 summer schedule was upsetting but unavoidable as the pandemic took hold across the globe. I know a lot of families were looking forward to flying out from Teesside to Majorca, Bulgaria and more for their holidays, but the circumstances were outside of anyone’s control. Now we’re looking to the future to make 2021 the best summer it can be for holidaymakers across the region, with these popular routes back at our airport and, in Balkan Holidays’ case, growing from its last service in 2019.”

“Both Balkan Holidays and JetsGo Holidays share our confidence in Teesside International and have shown this with their commitment to coming back year after year, even when the wider aviation industry is going through a difficult time. We’re delighted to welcome them back.

Chris Rand, sales and marketing manager, Balkan Holidays said: “We are pleased to be repeating our Teesside to Bourgas charter flight for summer 2021. It was a popular flight for summer 2019 and so we have added a second flight to give a choice of seven, ten, 11 and 14 night durations.”

Daniel Reilly, managing director of JetsGo Holidays, said: “While 2020 has turned into a staycation year for the majority, many have expressed a real desire to get something planned for next year that they can really look forward to, evident by the fact a lot of our summer 2020 customers opted to change their holidays over to 2021 instead.
