Passengers arriving at Teesside International Airport are now being greeted by a 7-metre banner advertising local logistics firm AV Dawson, which recently rebranded its local base to Port of Middlesbrough.

AV Dawson Joins a growing number of businesses investing in the regional airport, itself the subject of a recent rebranding exercise when it returned to its original name after several years as Durham Tees Valley.

Gary Dawson, managing director of AV Dawson said: “I believe the airport and Teesside more widely have an exciting future ahead and what a great moment it is to get involved. With the announcement of the Teesside Freeport and a huge amount of development on the river, the opportunities for businesses in the area are better right now than they have ever been before.”

After being saved from closure in 2019the airport is now undergoing a multi-million-pound refurbishment, the airport terminal is set for a dramatic transformation with new departure lounges, bars, duty free, baggage drop and security. A and, as part of the winning Teesside Freeport bid, will progress with the redevelopment of 270 acres of surrounding land to include logistics, manufacturing, and commercial space.
