Teesside Airport has announced it has had to cancel its planned summer Alicante route because of the ongoing impact of the Coronavirus outbreak.

The airport and long-standing airline partner Eastern Airways were to have started the weekly return flights from Friday 14 August through until 7 September. But they've taken the decision to cancel, following the UK government's quarantine restrictions on travel to Spain.

The airport says all customers will be contacted and a full refund will be offered.

All flights from Teesside were cancelled on 24 March when restrictions began, owing to the Coronavirus pandemic. On 22 June, flights resumed to Aberdeen and Belfast, then on 6 July flights began to London City and a new route to Newquay.
