Regional airline Eastern Airways has resumed its service from Aberdeen to Newcastle as pandemic restrictions ease
Effective September 6, Eastern Airways’ Aberdeen to Newcastle service will operate six days a week, restoring connectivity between the two regions and their transport-reliant offshore oil, gas and renewables industries.
The news is expected to be welcomed by businesses both sides of the border, as well as by passengers traveling to Northumberland, Tyneside and Durham for personal reasons.
Mark Beveridge, operations director at Aberdeen International Airport, said: “It is great to see Eastern Airways return to Aberdeen International Airport with its Newcastle service. This route will be warmly welcomed by our passengers and adds to the routes that strengthen our connectivity in the North East of Scotland.”
“Bringing business back to the region with safe travel is a key priority but there remains a long road ahead for aviation in the UK and the thousands of people employed within our industry,” he added.
September marks 20 years since Eastern Airways began operating flights between the North East’s largest Airport and the city of Aberdeen.
