Bristol Airport announces new North-East route with Loganair

Bristol Airport has announced that Loganair, the UK’s largest regional airline, has launched a new air route between Teesside International and Bristol. It will become the airline’s seventh route at Teesside.

The service, which starts on May 24, will operate a service in each direction Monday to Friday and on Sundays.  The 70-minute flight will leave Teesside on weekdays at 14.25, with the return flight departing from Bristol 16.05.  

Fares start from £49.99 one-way including all taxes and charges.   All Loganair fares include a free checked baggage allowance and tickets are now on sale.

Bristol Airport CEO, Dave Lees, said: “Frequent flights between Bristol and the North of England help foster strong links for business and tourism, which is why Loganair’s new Teesside service is such great news. Teesside is a convenient gateway from which to explore the North England, just as Bristol Airport is the ideal starting point for visitors to South West England and South Wales.”

Tim Bowles, West of England Mayor, said: “Creating better links with other parts of the UK will help strengthen our economy as we emerge from the pandemic and create more decent jobs for people here in the West of England. I’m pleased to see Bristol Airport continuing to expand its offer so that even more people see the opportunities for investment in our region.”

Loganair returned to Teesside – under its new ownership – on February 1 after an absence of over two years.  In a short time, the airline is already well established on the key route to Aberdeen; has added London Heathrow flights and is introducing flights from Teesside to Belfast City, Dublin, Jersey and Cornwall Airport Newquay over the coming weeks.

Loganair Chief Executive, Jonathan Hinkles, said: “We are very pleased to expand our commitment to Teesside International with this direct service to Bristol, connecting two important UK business locations.   We’re sure that the new connection will be warmly welcomed by customers travelling for work reasons and by those – just as soon as they can – travelling to visit friends and family.”
