Heathrow gets new UK domestic route

Today sees the introduction of a new regional service from Teesside to Heathrow (T2) initially with a single lunchtime return flight.

Operating the Public Service Obligation (PSO) is Eastern Airways who say that they are endeavouring to make the flights double daily, essential for connections, and serving West London and M4 corridor, plus the area south of Heathrow.  The airline is in talks with Star Alliance for whom Terminal 2 is the London home.

With British Airways vacating the Leeds – Heathrow route Teesside is seen as ideal for a large catchment area including North Yorkshire plus the Durham, Hartlepool and Middlesbrough conurbations.  

Eastern plans to use a 76-seat Embraer E170 on the route, with a 2+2 configuration and large overhead bins making it one of the most comfortable regional aircraft.

Roger Hage, General Manager Commercial & Operations for Eastern Airways, said: “As the UK’s regional airline, we at Eastern Airways are all about connecting people and places, which by providing a rare new domestic service into London Heathrow adds a worldwide array of onward destinations for business and leisure needs, vital for the economic recovery and prosperity of the Teesside region as a whole. It also makes for a quick and comfortable option for all to reach the capital or Teesside and adds to our growing array of services supporting the region.”

Today also sees the start of new Aer Lingus Regional services from Belfast City Airport to Birmingham and Manchester.
