The carrier has not flown to MME in several years, but the airport has begun a strategy to restart and launch major services for the next Summer season. Regarding today’s announcement, Tees Valley’s Mayor Ben Houchen said that having FR again showed that MME had a great future and was in safe hands.

The airport has already welcomed back the London Heathrow (LHR) service operated by Eastern Airways (T3) after a decade-long absence. This hiatus can be compared to the suspension of FR’s route to Alicante Airport (ALC) before today’s announcement. In all and amid the current crisis, this is good news for the local economy in north-east England.
