Eastern Airways has launched its new non-stop service from Belfast City Airport (BHD) to Newcastle – less than six months after the airline first entered the Northern Ireland market.
The UK regional airline is now providing a convenient, daily weekday service to the north east of England, with Visit Belfast welcoming the return of a Newcastle route to Belfast City Airport.
Eastern Airways entered the local market in March 2017 re-establishing Northern Ireland’s only air link to the Isle of Man less than 48 hours after Citywing’s liquidation.
Andy Mathieson, Eastern Airways’ Commercial Manager – Northern Ireland, said:
“We are pleased to be offering a new, non-stop service between Belfast City and Newcastle, linking these busy centres of industry as well as opening up access to other parts of Northern Ireland and the north east of England, including Northumberland, Sunderland and Teesside. The short flight and weekday departures make this option particularly convenient for business travellers.”
The Newcastle route was announced by Eastern Airways in July. The non-stop flight will operate daily, Monday to Friday, with prices starting from just £59 one way and bookable at www.easternairways.com
