Eastern Airways’ flights now on Flybe site

Eastern Airways’ flights are now on sale at flybe.com, ahead of the airlines’ five-year franchise partnership that starts on October 29.

Bookings for travel on or after October 29 can be made directly via flybe.com and through travel agents via the GDS under the ‘BE’ code.

Those booking for travel on October 28 or before will continue to book at easternairways.com.

On September 1, the alliance started as Eastern Airways provided four aircraft to operate on six of Flybe’s existing branded routes in Scotland, enabling Flybe to provide a continuation of its services from Sumburgh (Shetland Isles), Kirkwall (Orkney Isles), Stornoway (Western Isles), Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Mathew Herzberg, Eastern Airways’ head of commercial, said: “The franchise partnership will help to broaden the sales distribution of our route network through the Flybe brand and reach a wider audience of customers who are new to the Eastern Airways operated services.

“The BE flight code gives our customers greater connectivity to Flybe’s routes and global airline associated network with one single, seamless booking, along with online check-in.”

Flybe franchise flights operated by Eastern Airways will depart from Aberdeen, Wick John O’Groats, Stornoway, Glasgow, Newcastle, Durham Tees Valley, Leeds Bradford, Humberside, Belfast City, Isle of Man, Anglesey, Cardiff, Norwich, Southampton, Paris Orly and Rodez.
