CharterSync manages first cargo flights at Teesside International Airport

CharterSync manages first cargo flights at Teesside International Airport

CharterSync has managed the very first ad hoc flights into the new cargo facility at Teesside International Airport, which is set to play a vital role in powering trade in the north of England following the closure of Doncaster Sheffield Airport earlier this year.

CharterSync worked closely with Teesside Airport to manage two time-critical flights – carrying cargo for a major motor manufacturer – with just three hours’ notice. The ability to respond to urgent flight requests at the new Teesside facility has been developed over some months, with CharterSync working closely with the airport to ensure preparedness for ad hoc cargo flights.

This collaboration will boost the UK’s northeast trade lane, ensuring greater regional connectivity at a time when the closure of Doncaster Sheffield Airport means approximately 10,000 tonnes of freight that was handled there annually will need to be flown elsewhere.

“Teesside International Airport will play a crucial role in improving cargo infrastructure in the UK, particularly in the ad hoc and time-critical charter sectors. CharterSync will be fully supporting the activation and development of this new cargo hub, which has already demonstrated its impressive agility when it comes to providing the resources required to manage urgent flights at short notice,” Daniel Carriett, Global Cargo Director at CharterSync, said.

“We’re very pleased we could help process this important consignment at such short notice, with this flexibility being one of the core benefits of Teesside’s fully accredited cargo handling facility. From our cutting-edge security screening to great onward transport links, businesses can be confident of top-quality service from our team,” Walter Jones, Head of Cargo at Teesside International Airport, said.
