A new route operating between Glasgow in the UK and Stavanger in Norway is being introduced by Eastern Airways on 12 September 2011.
The airline, which offers more flights from its Scottish base in Aberdeen than any other carrier, is launching its first ever international service from Glasgow Airport with three flights a week to Stavanger.
The new Stavanger flights will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Monday and Wednesday flights will leave Stavanger at 09:20 and arrive in Glasgow at 09:50 local time. Services on Mondays and Wednesdays depart Glasgow at 10:20 and arrive in Stavanger at 13:20 local time.
On Fridays, flights will depart Stavanger at 10:00 and arrive in Glasgow at 10:30 local time. In the opposite direction, Friday services leave Glasgow at 11:00 and land in Stavanger at 13:30 local time.
“A new convenient route to Stavanger from Glasgow will not only benefit offshore workers who live in central Scotland, but also Norwegian contractors and businesses with links in Glasgow and the surrounding region,” explained Kay Ryan, Eastern Airways’ commercial director. “We will monitor the service and look to increase frequency if there’s high demand for more flights.”
