Eastern Airways increases flights between Stornoway and Aberdeen

Flybe franchise partner, Eastern Airways, has introduced 12 additional flights a week to its Stornoway – Aberdeen route, providing two flights a day on Monday to Friday services and a new Sunday service.

The double daily service, offering day return options, started on Monday(5 March 2018), with Sunday flights starting on 11 March.

Eastern Airways entered into a new partnership in October 2017 with Flybe, which offers a comprehensive network of flights operating onwards from Aberdeen Airport.

Mathew Herzberg, Eastern Airways’ Head of Commercial, said: “We have seen an increase in passenger numbers on the route and listened to feedback, and the time is now right to increase to double daily, offering day return options and the introduction of a new Sunday service to help increase leisure opportunities to the Western Isles.  The additional frequency also means that Stornoway passengers will have improved access to the many Flybe flights such as London Heathrow, Manchester and Birmingham via Aberdeen.”
