Emirates via Aberdeen

Aberdeen-based travellers (and those inbound) now have an alternative to the Middle East and beyond following the signing of an agreement between Emirates Airline and Eastern Airways linking Aberdeen and Newcastle.

Aberdeen is Eastern Airways’ largest base with services to 15 destinations, while Newcastle is also a key hub for the UK airline.  All passengers travelling with Eastern Airways are able to use the dedicated fast track security channels when departing from Aberdeen and Newcastle airports.

Eastern Airways’ 11:00 departure (T3 4035) from Aberdeen arrives in Newcastle at 11:55, where it connects with Emirates’ daily flight to Dubai (EK 036) at 13:10.  The Emirates service from Dubai (EK 035) arrives at Newcastle at 11:40, connecting with the return Eastern Airways service to Aberdeen (T3 4036) which departs at 13:30.

Emirates services are operated by an Airbus A330 aircraft with a choice of Business and Economy Class.  All passengers flying from Aberdeen are invited to use the Eastern Airways Business Lounge at Aberdeen. www.easternairways.com
