Eastern Airways is introducing a new early morning 06:45 departure from Southampton Airport to Aberdeen from 7 February 2011, taking its frequency on the route from three to four flights each weekday.
Roger Hage, Eastern Airways’ ground operations manager, noted, “By increasing our Aberdeen services to four flights each weekday, we are not only offering even greater choice, but it also enables us to provide more convenient timings from Southampton. The increase will particularly benefit those travelling to do a day’s business and offshore workers, as our flights are significantly quicker than long road or rail alternatives.”
Dave Lees, managing director of Southampton Airport, said: “The route between Southampton and Aberdeen is long established and is particularly popular with business passengers involved with the oil industry within both regions. The increase in flights from next February is fantastic news for Eastern Airways customers linking between the north and south."
