Sir, – What sort of an Alice in Wonderland financial system runs Teesside Airport? (I refuse to call it DTV – Deep Vein Thrombosis).

Have they not heard of SPQR?

No, it’s not just a plaque below a Roman Eagle standard, but is just as powerful today as Small Profit Quick Returns..

If the airport reduced charges by ten per cent and concentrated on a viable flight programme, it could justify its case as Teesside has excellent facilities.

Increasing the price without adding to its flight traffic will be financial suicide.
