Starting today, 11 November, regional carrier Eastern Airways is re-introducing a Flybe franchise service linking Cardiff with Aberdeen with 10 flights a week Mondays to Fridays between the national airport for Wales and the UK’s offshore capital.
Services from Cardiff were launched by Eastern Airways in 2006 and the airline also flies from the airport to Anglesey and Newcastle.
General manager commercial and operations Roger Hage said: “We are re-establishing a previous air link from Cardiff to Aberdeen aimed at the energy sector and growing leisure market.”
Cardiff Airport chief commercial officer Spencer Birns added: “It is fantastic to see the return of flights to Aberdeen. We welcome the franchise partnership between Eastern Airways and Flybe, which already serves our customers well.”
Cardiff – Aberdeen flights, bookable via the Flybe website, will operate via Newcastle with on-board transit. Eastern passengers are offered free drinks and snacks and regular customers can also benefit from discounted route passes saving up to 40%.
Yorkshire and Humber-based Eastern Airways was formed in 1997 and as well as operating scheduled flights specialises in customer-focused charter services for the energy industry, corporate and sports contracts and ad-hoc flights.
