Scottish carrier Loganair is to drop two more routes from Teesside International airport next spring.
Flights to Belfast City and Dublin will cease at the end of March 2023, following what the airline described as “low levels of customer demand this summer”.
In May this year Loganair dropped its routes from Teesside to London Heathrow and Southampton, and more recently the carrier announced that flights between Teesside and Cornwall Airport Newquay would not return for 2023.
The latest cuts leave Loganair with just one route from Teesside airport, to Aberdeen.
The BBC quotes a spokesperson for the carrier as stating that it “regretted to announce” the scrapping of the services to Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, adding that it is “fully committed to its Aberdeen service” and is looking forward to “continuing to work with the team at Teesside International airport”.
Teeside (formerly Durham Tees Valley airport) saw a peak of traffic of over 900,000 passengers in 2006, but this had fallen to just 130,000 in 2017 before recovering to around 150,000 in pre-pandemic 2019.
Current operators include Eastern Airways, KLM, Loganair, Ryanair and TUI.
