First flight to Portugal in 13 years takes off from Teesside

The first holiday flight to Portugal in nearly 13 years has, today, jetted off from Teesside International Airport.

Ryanair has launched the flights to Faro, the capital of the country’s popular Algarve region, following strong sales to its other destinations. Portugal is the latest popular Ryanair service to depart from the airport and joins Palma in Majorca and Alicante, both launched earlier this month. 

Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen, said: “This is the third of Ryanair’s four routes to take to the skies from Teesside Airport. Ryanair came to our airport with two popular destinations, the much-requested Majorca and Alicante, and thanks to the uptake of these flights by local people, it allowed them to expand by adding two more destinations in rapid succession. This proves that with the right flights and the right investment, local people when given a proper choice, are keen to use their local airport and help to make it the success we know it can be.”

To make sure passengers to these destinations, and others served by the airport, have a stress-free start to their trip, Teesside Airport has recently completed a multimillion-pound terminal transformation. New state-of-the-art bag and body scanners make passing through check-in and security smoother than ever, and travellers can now relax in one of the airport’s two bars or lounges.
