Eastern Airways flies the flag

Not to be outdone by other larger UK airlines celebrating the Jubilee, Humberside-based regional carrier Eastern Airways will be flying the flag for Britain this summer, as one of its aircraft has been unveiled in patriotic Union Jack livery.
The new livery can be seen on the fuselage and tailfin of a 37-seater Embraer 135 jet with Rolls-Royce engines, which flies around Eastern Airways’ UK and European network.
The UK’s second largest regional airline was established in 1997 and initially developed its network around the North Sea offshore industry with services between the east coast of England and Aberdeen.  It now operates more flights to and from Aberdeen than any other carrier with a fleet of 30 aircraft flying to 21 airports in the UK, Norway, Belgium and France.
Kay Ryan, Eastern Airways’ Commercial Director, said that the new livery was an eye-catching way to mark the milestone.
“This year is all about celebrating everything that makes Britain great and I’m sure our passengers will be delighted to travel with us on this special aircraft, which carries the Union Jack tens of thousands of miles over the next few months”. www.easternairways.com
