Eastern Airways to Increase Irish Services
British Regional airline, Eastern Airways, has announced that it is to increase service on its Belfast City to Teeside route in October. The route will increase to a twice daily service on weekdays from 5th October. The route has been performing well and has justified the increase in service. The airline was due to start a new route from Southampton to Dublin during in July but a new start date of 23rd October has been listed by the airline. The current restrictions regarding passengers arriving into Ireland from the UK requiring a 14 day quarantine period is obviously having an effect on possible advance bookings.
By taking over the former FlyBe route between Southampton and Dublin, it will increase the number of routes it operates from Southampton to seven. Commencing with an initial daily round-trip, the frequency will increase quickly as demand increases following the return to air travel following the reduced Covid-19 travel restrictions and return of business and leisure travel. The airline expects to have up to five aircraft located at its Southampton base. The airline also operate twice daily on the Southampton to Belfast City route. Eastern Airways flights provide a minimum of 15kg of free hold baggage plus carry-on baggage included in all fares
