Eastern adds to Southampton?Newcastle service

4th June 2009 - 09:55 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


A new early morning year-round flight is being introduced by Eastern Airways from Southampton International Airport to Newcastle, offering greater convenience for south of England business travellers.

The independent business-focused airline, which recently announced new services from Southampton to Liverpool starting in July, will launch the 7am timing to Newcastle along with a new 4.05pm Southampton departure from 6 July 2009.  Flights will arrive in Newcastle at 8.20am and 5.25pm respectively.

The new 7am and 4.05pm weekday timings will be offered along with the existing 7.05pm weekday Southampton to Newcastle departure and will replace the current 9.20am 4.25pm services.  Also, flights to Southampton will leave Newcastle at 8.50am, 2pm and 5.30pm.    

Humberside-based Eastern Airways, which is consistently rated one of the UK’s best on-time scheduled airlines*, has provided high frequency services from Southampton to Newcastle since 2003.

“We’ve responded to business traveller requirements as it was evident there was a gap in the market for early morning departures from Southampton to Newcastle,” said Chris Holliday, Eastern Airways’ chief operating officer.  “Adjusting the timings allows our Southampton passengers to arrive in Newcastle city centre before 9am and helps maximise their time in the north east.” 

Passengers can check-in just 30 minutes before the departure time and fast track security channels at both Southampton and Newcastle airports ensure Eastern Airways customers avoid any queues in security search.

Eastern Airways will start its new three times a day weekday service from Southampton to Liverpool on 6 July 2009 and also flies to Leeds Bradford and Aberdeen from the Hampshire airport.

Onboard, a fully inclusive service is offered and passengers are not charged for hold baggage or choice of seat.
