Flybe starts operations with Eastern Airways

01 September 2017 07:48

Flybe Group has started operations with Eastern Airways (UK) following the alliance announced on 6 June.

Flybe and Eastern have signed a joint revenue and risk sharing agreement, covering four Eastern aircraft, to fly existing Flybe branded routes from Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Manchester.

Flybe said these flights would start today, and would significantly enhance connectivity in Scotland.

It said the separate five year franchise agreement, in which Eastern would operate its scheduled route network under the Flybe brand, would commence on 29 October and tickets would be on sale for those flights early this month.

Chief executive Christine Ourmieres-Widener said "Flybe is delighted to start operations with our new franchise partner, Eastern Airways.

"The flights, both under the franchise and risk-sharing agreements, demonstrate our long-term commitment to Scotland and provide much needed choice on some of the lifeline routes so critical to the Scottish Highlands and Islands.

"Flybe and Eastern together also offer a wealth of onward connections to the UK and the rest of the world and we look forward to welcoming passengers on board".
