'Regional airline Eastern Airways has announced the addition of extra flights from Aberdeen, Southampton and Newcastle to destinations across the UK and Europe.

From 3 March the airline will increase flight frequencies and capacity from Aberdeen to Newcastle, Southampton and Leeds Bradford as well as Newcastle to Southampton, Cardiff and Stavanger.

The move builds on the airlines focus on business customers and was last month named the most punctual airline from Newcastle, beating airlines like Air France and KLM.'

Home base? I can't think of an airline that makes it harder to spot their home base on their route map Big grin

Well, if they concentrated on HUY, they'd go bust within 5 minutes  Yeah sure

Where are the new European routes then? The ones mentioned are in the UK.

I think it refers to the increased frequency on NCL/ABZ to Stavanger. I'm sure of the other routes.

Who's saying they should do that? Would be nice if they added HUY flights as well as expand elsewhere

Maybe a crazy idea, but what about HUY-RTM as an extension of an ABZ flight? Would serve the ABZ-RTM market and HUY-RTM. I would have thought there will be a lot of port related traffic between HUY and RTM and I doubt it would have any significant effect on KLM

Also SOU-Angers goes from 3 to 4 times a week

Should point out T3 are axing their twice daily INV-BHX route due to BE starting once daily flights on the route

Quoting Humberside (Reply 6):

Humberside has very limited potential for scheduled flights aside from the current T3 ABZ and KL AMS flights. It's main strength is charters and cargo, especially given the fish factories at Grimsby, Scunthrope and Cleethorpes.

If T3 was to expand at HUY, where could they fly to profitably?

As I said maybe RTM. I would be tempted to say BRU, BRS and SOU but I think if they were going to do those routes they would have done them now. And they've tried GLA and EDI in the past

FR showed there was demand for DUB, just not with a B737-800. And I think a limited Spanish network (like GSM at MME, Jet 2 at BLK) could work. Plus maybe a Scandinavian link, though I cant really think of a likely airline

Isn't T3 flying my old J41's from TransStates? I think we sent some or ours to you guys. I must have J41 on the brain today as I've already mentioned it in my last thread minutes ago.

And according to Wikipedia, T3 have crew bases at:

Quote:
...Leeds Bradford International Airport, Newcastle International Airport, Durham Tees Valley Airport, Humberside Airport, East Midlands Airport, Southampton Airport, Isle of Man, Aberdeen Airport, Inverness Airport, Wick Airport, Hawarden Airport (Chester) and Norwich Airport.

That would be 12 of the 17 UK airports they serve. With any luck that'll give Micheal O'Leary a heart attack Big grin

They have some former United Express ones, presume they are ex TransStates? Made a change seeing United liveried aircraft at HUY

It always seems to me, at least on the east coast, that T3 are picking up the scraps left by the big boys & now LCC's after the disappearance of Air UK, who operated some oil & gas related routes. Didnt they fly to Bergen & Stavanger from HUY with F27's?? I thought there was also some oil / gas related traffic at HUY.

I think Eastern could make Brussels, Copenhagen, Paris CDG, Southampton and Stavanger work from Humberside.

Paris would be the only one that might stand a chance.
Brussels - well we seen how well that worked from MME.
Copenhagen - Not a chance
Southampton - Possibly, but unlikely
Stavanger - No chance in hell.

There is indeed oil and gas traffic at HUY. We have two major oil refineries nearby along with other facilities, while HUY is used for helicopter flights to North Sea oil and gas rigs with CHC Scotia. Furthermore old and gas traffic sustains our ABZ service

We have had Esbjerg service in the past (not with Air UK though, although they did list Cimber Air's flights in an old timetable I have) but no Bergen or Stavanger as far as i know. It's always been a case of changing in ABZ

Paris probably needs AF to work imo. I agree with you about BRU and SOU. And Stavanger is already offered connection at ABZ, maybe a direct through flight would be nice but what we have currently is adequate

CPH I disagree on. There is demand to Scandinavia, including CPH. A Cimber Air CRJ once a day with an SAS codeshare would be ideal. CPH would offer Scandinavian connections. Though sadly I cant see it hapenning due to bmi's LBA-CPH service

To be fair AMS is a very good hub for Scandinavian connections
