Durham Tees Valley Airport (IATA: MME, ICAO: EGNV) is located five miles east of Darlington, in North East England. It is one of the UK's smaller airports and is mainly used for chartered flights, although there are a growing number of scheduled flights available. The airport is owned by a consortium of local authorities and Peel Holdings PLC.
Previously called Teesside International Airport, it was renamed Durham Tees Valley Airport on 21 September 2004 as part of a redevelopment plan.
Previously, Durham Tees Valley was a RAF base, RAF Middleton St. George. In 1963, the decision was made to close the airfield and it was sold to Cleveland County Council who developed the site into a commercial airport. Queen Margaritha of Sweden opened the international passenger terminal in 1966. The airport has since been developed as a regional airport for the North East of England, and has expanded successfully ever since.
A new bus service, the Sky Express, was launched in May 2005, connecting the airport with Darlington's train station and town centre. Travel is free for passengers with a valid air ticket on the day, or £2 without. The service runs hourly throughout the day.
