From 23 November, Eastern Airways plans to introduce a new schedule for Sunday flights on its East Midlands–Aberdeen route, which it believes will appeal to oil workers heading offshore early on a Monday morning and business commuters with Monday morning meetings.
Eastern Airways began operating between the East Midlands and Aberdeen in 2000. The new Sunday schedule, which gives passengers the choice of departing East Midlands at 19:20 and arriving in Aberdeen at 20:45pm, or going in the opposite direction from Aberdeen at 17:30pm and arriving in East Midlands at 18:55pm, will complement the airline’s existing year-round offering of up to three flights per day between the two locations from Monday to Friday.
East Midlands Airport recently opened a new executive ‘Escape’ lounge in the terminal, to which passengers travelling on fully flexible Eastern Airways tickets and the airline’s Zonal and 4-4-3 route passes have complimentary access. All Eastern Airways scheduled customers continue to benefit from having a dedicated business lounge at Aberdeen Airport.
“Eastern Airways has been a longstanding partner of the airport and their domestic services to cities such as Aberdeen are of great value to our customers in the Midlands region,” noted Andy Cliffe, managing director of East Midlands Airport. “We are continuing to see strong growth here at East Midlands Airport, which is being supported by the terminal improvements we are making and the additional airline services we are looking to add.”
