Next redevelopment phase takes off at Teesside International Airport

Work has begun on the next phase of a travel hub’s redevelopment.

Contractors are overhauling buildings at Teesside International Airport to create leisure and office space.

The changes will see the creation of the Sky Bar and a viewing platform on land where offices currently stand.

Bosses say the viewing platform will be operational by May 2022.

In addition, around 1360sq metres of new commercial space is earmarked for a former buffet restaurant area at the site.



Work is being carried out by local firms Wharton Construction, 186 Property Solutions and ADL Developments, which all previously worked on a major revamp of the airport’s terminal building.

Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen said: “This latest work will see a fantastic new area created where people can kick back and relax.

“2022 will be the airport’s busiest summer in years, with Ryanair committed to the same popular destinations it brought this year, and the return of TUI.

“As ever, we’re backing our brilliant local businesses as we continue our redevelopment, with the trusted specialist contractors back on site for this new phase, which begins our plans to capitalise on the airport’s land and assets with top-quality office space.”
