Eastern Airways doubles service on UK energy route
By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 17 Jan 2019
Eastern Airways is to double its daily services between Newcastle and Aberdeen.
The Humberside Airport based airline, which operates the route as a franchise partner of Flybe, will take the service up from two to four flights a day, helping improve links between the city and the UK’s oil capital.
It will start on Monday and follows last week’s Newcastle to London City launch.
Roger Hage, Eastern Airways’ general manager for operations, said: “After a strong start to bookings in 2019, we have significantly increased our Newcastle to Aberdeen service with some weekday customers now having double the amount of flights to choose from, thanks to our Monday to Thursday service operating four times daily from Newcastle.
“We know the Newcastle and Durham Tees Valley services to Aberdeen are heavily relied upon by those working in the oil and gas sector, and with the latest industry survey* revealing the highest levels of confidence in business since 2013, we’re very pleased to help meet the demands in the sector.”
Passengers travelling on services operated by Eastern Airways benefit from fast track security at both Newcastle and Aberdeen airports, complimentary on board hot and cold drinks, snacks and bar service - featuring Grimsby’s Docks Beers - online check-in and 10kg inclusive hand luggage.
Steve Szalay, Aberdeen International Airport managing director said: “Newcastle has strong links with the energy sector and is therefore an essential destination for our business passengers. It is also a great location for a weekend break, consistently voted as one of the best in the UK. We look forward to welcoming our passengers to the newly upgraded terminal when the increased number of flights begins later this month.”
