The arrangement is set to enhance connectivity from Teesside Airport, with 134 global destinations available
The UK’s largest regional airline, Loganair has today announced its new codeshare agreement with British Airways to help enhance connectivity from Teesside Airport.
The carrier currently operates flights from the Northern hub to London Heathrow, which under usual circumstances would connect the North East and Yorkshire to more than 180 destinations across 84 countries.
“The adding of Teesside International to the British Airways and Loganair codeshare agreement is another fantastic coup that, as the government continues to review the rules on travelling abroad, makes our airport more global and outward-looking than ever,” said Ben Houchen, Tees Valley mayor. “This arrangement with British Airways cuts down on queuing times, stress and hassle for people travelling abroad for business or a much-deserved holiday.”
“The global aviation industry has obviously been hit hard by coronavirus, but it’s essential that we put measures in place now so that we’re in a position for a speedy and smooth take-off as restrictions ease.”
Chris Fordyce, head of alliances at British Airways, added: “I am delighted to be growing our partnership with Loganair through this new codeshare route, and look forward to connecting customers in the Tees Valley with our extensive global network.”
An existing codeshare agreement is already in place between the two airlines from other UK locations. With the addition of Teesside, passengers are able to fly from the base to 134 onward destinations.
