Durham Tees Valley Airport, England

Durham Tees Valley Airport (IATA: MME, ICAO: EGNV) is an airport in North East England, located approximately 10 km (6 miles) east of Darlington, about 16 km (10 miles) south west of Middlesbrough and 39 km (24 miles) south of Durham. The airport is also easily accessible from Stockton-on-Tees, Newcastle, Gateshead, Sunderland, Redcar and Hartlepool.

Previously called Teesside International Airport, it was renamed on 21 September 2004 as part of a major redevelopment plan in a move unpopular with many local residents.

Durham Tees Valley Airport is one of the UK's smaller airports, but is rapidly expanding, with a growing number of scheduled and charter flights.

Durham Tees Valley was a RAF base, RAF Middleton St. George (known as RAF Goosepool until 1941). 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. Princess Margaretha 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.
