Between 1941 and 1945, RAF Middleton St George was allocated as a base for the Royal Canadian Air Force, flying Vickers Wellingtons, Halifaxes and Avro Lancasters.

The RAF station was closed in 1964 and was sold to the Ministry of Civil Aviation. On 18 April 1964, The first civilian flight from the newly named Tees-Side Airport took place. Two years later, on 1 November, the international passenger terminal was opened by Princess Margaretha of Sweden.
