The UK’s Peel Airports Ltd, a consortium of Peel Holdings and Canada’s Vancouver Airport Services (YVRAS) has decided to sell its majority (75%) shareholding in Durham Tees Valley Airport (DTVA) in northeast England. Passenger traffic has been falling steadily since 2006. An urgent search is under way to identify new owners who are prepared to invest to make the airport – situated in what can best be described as a post-industrial region on an industrial scale – viable.

The 17th annual Global Airport Development (GAD) conference and attendant Investing in Airports summit were held in Dublin, Ireland, from 15 to 18-Nov-2010, attracting around 230 speakers and delegates at the main conference.

This could provoke a neo-tribal confrontation, as Manchester also takes on a new CEO later this year.
