A leading airline provider has announced an 'exciting' new flight from a North East airport as part of its Summer programme.

TUI have today (April 3) said they will be offering a new route to Agadir, Morocco, from Newcastle Airport.

This will allow 30,000 more people to travel from the airport in summer 2025 – with three flights per week also seeing increased frequency to Kos, Greece.

Andrew Flintham, TUI UK&I managing director, said he was pleased to see demand for travels abroad increase in the North East.

He said: “We are seeing an increase in demand from the Northeast region, which is why we have added an additional 30,000 seats to our summer 2025 programme including an exciting new route to Agadir, Morocco.

“This now means that there will be more flights to Turkey, Spain and Greece giving customers more choice not only in destination but also in holiday duration and flight times.

“Our customers want to go on the holiday best for them, and they want to be able to fly out of their local airport.”
