The Bannatyne Group has announced the opening of its first airport spa, located at Teeside International Airport in Darlington, UK, following a £100,000 investment.

Housed in the airport’s departure lounge, the Bannatyne Spa is described as ‘a luxury wellbeing environment’ and is open to all passengers traveling from the airport.

The spa, led by spa manager Katie Forster, offers a host of 15 to 30-minute treatments and experiences by appointment only, including hands-on massage rituals and nail services, as well as massage chairs and LED face masks.

Guests will also be able to purchase a range of skincare products, thanks to a partnership with luxury skincare house Elemis.

“We’re delighted to be welcoming passengers to our new Teesside International Airport spa,” said Bannatyne Group operations director Karen Wilkinson. 

“The airport is looking fantastic, and flights are being added to more destinations. It’s great that we can be part of its success story and offer something new and welcome commercial and leisure passengers for some pampering before their flights.” 

Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen said: “I’m thrilled to see the Bannatyne Spa at Teesside Airport throw open its doors. By welcoming Bannatyne’s to our airport, it shows how we’re doing things a bit differently to give passengers a truly memorable experience. This makes us one of the few airports in the UK with a spa, which I’m sure will prove popular as our flights ramp up for a bigger and better 2022.

Be well...
