Bannatyne Group opens its first luxury in-airport spa at Teesside International

The Bannatyne Group has opened a luxury spa for jet setters at Teesside International Airport – the first in-airport location for the company as it continues to expand its portfolio.

The Bannatyne Spa, launched in partnership with British skincare brand Elemis, is located in the departure lounge at Teesside International in Middlesbrough.

It was created following a £100,000 investment to create a luxury wellbeing environment for travellers at the airport, which recently underwent refurbishment.

Visitors to the spa can relax pre-departure with a range of short treatments lasting between 15-to-30 minutes, and other experiences including massage chairs, manicures and pedicures, hands-on massage, and LED face mask treatments. 

The spa, which is taking appointments-only, also offers a range of Elemis products available for purchase within the location’s retail area.

Inside Bannatyne Airport Spa

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

“The airport is looking fantastic, and flights are being added to more destinations. It is 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.” 

The spa is the latest addition to the Bannatyne Group, founded by Duncan Bannatyne OBE, which currently operates 70 health clubs, 47 spas and four hotels, with around 200,000 members across the health clubs.

Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen said: “I’m thrilled to see the Bannatyne Spa at Teesside Airport throw open its doors. By welcoming Bannatyne 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.”
