Busy times for Eastern Airways

Last week was a busy one for Eastern Airways with three new services starting – Gibraltar to both Birmingham and Southampton, plus Cardiff to Belfast.

Both the flights to Gibraltar are twice weekly and all year round, the British Overseas Territory on the Government’s Green List.

For Birmingham, Gibraltar means the return of a destination very popular with now defunct Monarch Airlines.  With Southampton, Eastern became the first operator to introduce a new overseas destination since the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on international travel.

Roger Hage, GM for Eastern Airways, said: “What a welcome sign of summer and return to enjoying the sun in the Mediterranean these first services from Birmingham to Gibraltar mark. Being on the Green List of destinations with a wealth of quality hotels, beaches, water-sports and heritage, this British Overseas Territory offers an exciting short-break destination aside from its role in UK business. Our work with the Gibraltar Government and the airports and tourism teams have enabled this new service to start highlighting the pivotal role Eastern Airways is playing in growing air services across all four home nations.”
