The new codeshare agreement makes travel to destinations across the world faster, efficient and more convenient than ever, with customers able to connect onto British Airways routes flying on a “through ticket”, with the facility to check in hold baggage at their departure airport straight through to their destination.

Loganair currently operates flights from the airport to London Heathrow which, international coronavirus restrictions permitting, would typically connect Teesside, the North East and Yorkshire with more than 180 locations in 84 countries across the world.

The airline has an existing ‘codeshare’ agreement with British Airways from other destinations across the UK.  Teesside International Airport has now been added to that which means passengers flying globally from Teesside via the UK’s biggest airport can book on one single ticket, at BA.com, to 134 onward destinations – subject to Government rules.

Under the deal, there is no need for passengers to recheck their bags and there is added protection against missing connections due to delays.

Fares can now be previewed via www.britishairways.com, with tickets available to book from 22 June for travel from 1 July onwards.

Kay Ryan, Chief Commercial Officer at Loganair, said: “I am delighted that our customers, wishing to connect through London Heathrow to the rest of the world, can now do so by booking via British Airways on one ticket, with all the security and peace of mind that brings to international travel. Our increased frequency, 3 flights a day from 12 July, means that many more worldwide connections are now available.’’

“Chris Fordyce, Head of Alliances at British Airways, said: “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.”

Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen said: “The adding of Teesside International to the British Airways and Loganair codeshare agreement is another fantastic coup that, as Government continues to review the rules on travelling abroad, makes our airport more global and outward-looking than ever. 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. That’s also why we’ve also made massive multimillion-pound improvements to our terminal building, so we can quicky process more and more passengers as they take advantage of these and other routes.

“Together, it all means we’re ready to wow not only tourists, but also investors and businesspeople, who will see the airport as a great asset if they’re looking to relocate here. Teesside International’s a key part of my plan for jobs and we’re continuing to grab all of the opportunities it presents with both hands.”
