Eastern for Aberdeen London City

In what it calls part of its “strategic business alignment”, Eastern Airways, a franchise partner of Flybe, is to take over operating the Aberdeen – London City route next Monday, 7 May.

The continuation of the route will result in the same weekday frequency of two flights a day in each direction and also a Sunday service. Eastern plans to operate eventually with the 76-seat Embraer 170 jet, but will begin with a 50-seat Saab 2000.

Eastern head of commercial Mathew Herzberg said: “We welcome the opportunity to operate this service. It’s vital Europe’s oil capital continues to have a direct link with the city of London.”

Aberdeen Airport managing director Carol Benzie added: “It’s great news Eastern Airways will be introducing jet service. A seamless transition from Flybe with no break in service and a shorter journey will hopefully be welcomed by regular travellers.

“Good connectivity into the heart of the UK’s capital is vital for our passengers as well as for the economic prospects of the larger North-east region.”

London City Airport commercial director Richard Hill said: “This demonstrates our on-going commitment to regional connectivity, closing the gap between central London and Aberdeen, and helping to connect businesses and tourists in both directions.”
