Durham Tees Valley Airport has announced a new summer service to Ibiza starting in 2014.
Airport director Steve Gill said: “We are very pleased that Thomson has decided to offer this additional service to Ibiza which is a popular destination for North-East holidaymakers. The airport said it hoped to attract more new routes soon. Gill added: “We are in constant discussions with airlines and operators about developing new routes and services. It remains a tough market but it is good to have positive news today. What's important now is that local people show their support for both the new service and the Majorca service.” Thomson already runs a summer service to Majorca from the airport.
