Aberdeen to Newcastle by Eastern *

Eastern Airways is to resume the service linking Aberdeen Airport to Newcastle International Airport from 6 September to provide the vital connectivity between the two regions for the transport-reliant offshore oil, gas and renewables industries.

The news will be welcomed by many businesses, as well as passengers looking to travel to the Northumberland, Tyneside and Durham region on holiday or to visit friends and family.

The resumed schedule will see flights operating six days a week taking less than one hour.

Richard Knight, Chief Operating Officer at Newcastle International Airport, said: “The connection between Newcastle and Aberdeen is vital for the region’s economy and many businesses that operate in the offshore sector.

“This  September marks 20 years since Eastern Airways began operating flights between the North East’s largest airport and the city of Aberdeen. We are delighted that the airline has chosen to resume this important route which will benefit many businesses as they begin the road to recovery from the pandemic.

Eastern pulled a Southampton to Aberdeen service via Teesside, but maintains a N'castle service. Perhaps it could do Southampton Aberdeen via N'castle?
