Southampton to Dijon

Eastern Airways, which is developing a French network of services from its base in Dijon, will launch a new summer service from Southampton to the eastern France airport.  Flights will operate from Monday 6 June, and also on a Friday and Sunday using a pressurised 29-seat Jetstream 41 aircraft. 

The city of Dijon is the capital of the Côte d’Or and Bourgogne region and industry includes manufacturing, automobile, electronics, machinery and pharmaceuticals.  The region has some of the country’s best wine producing vineyards, and of course Dijon is famous for its mustard.

This latest announcement is part of Eastern Airways’ expansion plans for Dijon, following the set up of a dedicated French base in September 2010 with domestic services to Bordeaux and Toulouse.  The airline has already confirmed the start of a daily domestic route from Dijon to Nantes from 16 May, while Southampton becomes Dijon’s only international route. www.easternairways.com
