Usually, the transportation sector of any country has a long history in connection to its urbanization, systems of governance and so on. The aircraft industry is, therefore, also under the influence of political and social, not to mention technological and infrastructural developments. The current state of international airports is determined by the global economy, as globalisation has encouraged the expansion of networks, airlines, and the reach of airline companies. Every airport is supported by airline groups that fly to and fro from the airport. However, it would be unfair to view airports simply as economy-driven infrastructural models. Some international airports have a long and fascinating history woven into their development, with most of them being shaped by wars, monarchy, and other political influences. The Durham Tees Valley Airport is one such historically-inclined airport.

History of the Airport

The airport was initially called the Teesside International Airport. Over the years, its name underwent a change, like most other airports tend to experience. The airport began functioning in the year 1941 as a Royal Airforce Station. Currently, the airport services the following regions: Teesside, North Yorkshire, and County Durham. The airport is located within the vicinity of Middleton St. George village in the Borough of Darlington. This airport is known for its proper management; however, flight delays are still known to occur at times, thereby causing a great deal of inconvenience to the passengers

Delays and other Issues

It is common that passengers book multiple flights, and the departure or arrival of one particular flight can impact the schedule of other flights. Passengers might have important business meetings or job interviews scheduled; they might even have crucial personal visits and tasks at the mercy of their flights landing on time.

What rights do I have?

Under EU law, you can get up to 480£ compensation in the event of a delay, cancellation or overbooking of your flight.
This is true regardless of the ticket price and up to 6 years retrospectively.
