After months of talk/rumours/press articles, Eastern Airways have finally put its new French operation on sale. They will fly from Dijon to Bordeaux from September 20th and to Toulouse from September 27th. Both routes will be served 2xMon-Fri and 1xSun. Friday morning flights will operate Dijon-TLS-BOD-Dijon. Looks like 2 aircraft will be needed for the operation.

ERJ can't operate to Scatsta. They will be used, as Humberside says, mainly on sport and corporate ad-hoc charters, which is a major part of Eastern's business. Some of these customers will only fly on a jet.
Eastern already has a presence in France operating regular flights for a large number of French football teams. Aircraft have been semi-based in Dijon for some time.
