Loganair (LM, Glasgow International) is set to open a base at Teesside on February 1, 2021, with a single E145 stationed at the northern English airport, ch-aviation schedule analysis has revealed.

The Scottish regional specialist will initially operate to Belfast City (daily) and Aberdeen Dyce (6x weekly). Then, starting March 28, 2021, it will add daily flights to Dublin International, 2x weekly flights to Newquay, and increase frequencies to Belfast and Aberdeen by an additional 7x and 10x weekly flights on each route. In May, the carrier will also add services to Jersey.

Loganair has not served Teesside since 2018. It will directly compete with Eastern Airways (T3, Humberside), currently the only airline operating scheduled flights from the airport, on routes to Belfast and Aberdeen. Eastern Airways also flies 5x weekly to Humberside, the ch-aviation schedules shows, using a mixture of E145s and Jetstream 41s.

Teesside is set to become Loganair's first English base. The carrier currently bases its aircraft out of Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow International, Inverness, and Kirkwall, all of which are located in Scotland.
