Eastern Airways plans to offer nonstop flights on Sundays between Norwich International Airport and Aberdeen, taking out the previous stop at Humberside Airport.
Removing the en-route stop means a later departure time from Norwich is possible, which complements the airline’s year-round weekday services which offer up to three flights a day between both locations.
The new departure times – 18.15 from Norwich and 20:00 from Aberdeen – are expected to attract leisure travellers, as well as benefitting Eastern Airways primary targets – business customers with early meetings and oil workers heading offshore early on Monday mornings.
“Eastern Airways’ decision to operate a non-stop Aberdeen service from Norwich on a Sunday evening is very welcome, and further improves the connections that Norwich Airport can offer to the energy industry and travelling public in East Anglia,” claimed Andrew Bell, chief executive of Norwich International Airport.
The airline has been operating scheduled services between Norwich and Aberdeen since 1999.
