History
Originally RAF Goosepool, the airfield became RAF Middleton St. George in 1941. The RAF base closed in 1963 and was bought by Cleveland County Council who developed it into an airport calling it Teeside International. The first civilian flight being in 1964 and an international passenger terminal opened in 1966.

In 1996 when Cleveland County Council was abolished, the airport ownership was divided amongst local Borough Councils. Peel Airports Ltd took a 75% stake in 2002. The name was changed in 2004 to Durham Tees Valley Airport and later a new access road, terminal front and terminal interior were completed. The new name was unpopular with some local residents who still call it Teesside International Airport, however it was decided that many would be unfamiliar with the location of Teeside and that Durham was better known.

A number of flight training schools and flying clubs are based at the airport. It is a base for Cobham plc, who have a fleet of six Dassault Falcon 20s based at the airport. Cobham's Durham Tees Valley aircraft fly electronic countermeasure flights for the Royal Air Force and other NATO air forces. Cobham Flight Inspection operate a single Beech B350 Super King Air & a single Diamond DA42 MPP Guardian. The Great North Air Ambulance opeartes its Aerospatiale AS365 Dauphin II, and the Cleveland Police has its Eurocopter EC135 based here.
