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 Teesside International 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.
