New! HUY-EDI Flights With Eastern

Tue Mar 26, 2002 8:13 am

I have just seen on the Eastern Airways site that they will begin Humberside-Edinburgh services in April.

HUY-EDI
0715-0825
1715-1825

EDI-HUY
0855-1005
1855-2005

flights are Mon-Fri only and are operated by Jetstream 32 a/c. looks like Eastern are finally expanding at HUY!

Any sign of the extra MAN services including the proposed 3 daily HUY(!)?

Pity I don't need any of the newer J31s seeing that they've been in MAN before in Regional Airlines services!

i had heard on the grape vine about a HUY-MAN service, no news at the moment on that one. I suspect Eastern's J31's are kept pretty busy they do loads of charter work for airlines and companies. Personally, i dont think this new route will so particularly well. In terms of growth potential, Brussels, Paris or a London airport are proven as routes from HUY, they would be better for Eastern.

Any new on about charter flights this summer? I have seen on a newsgroup that HUY used to have an Orlando service with 757s stopping at Shannon. Is the runway long enough to offer non-stop service to the Canaries or must there by a fuel-stop somewhere? I was under the impression that it was short and allowed payload-restricted departures only.

HUY's runway is 2,160 m long, so fully ladened non stop canary, and cyprus flights do operate. Britannia operated a number of one off charters from HUY to Orlando and the dominican republic with 767-200s in the late 90's.

The summer charter programme for 2002 is as follows:

PMI
AEA 738
AEA 738
AEA 738
BY 738
BY 738
JMC 752
IWD 320

MAH
MYT 320

IBZ
AEA 738
AEA 738

TFS
AEA 738
MYT 320
IWD 320

LPA
FUA 738

ACE
AEA 738

ALC
MYT 320
BY 738

AGP
FUA 738

FAO
LXR 320

CFU
BY 738

LCA
HCY 738
XLA 738

DLM
OHY M88
MYT 752
PGT 738

JER
VG F50
VG F50

a total of 12 airlines! and 27 flights a week! There is a strong possibility of Mytravel basing an A320 at HUY for summer 2003.

as for the NCL-MAN service, Gill had planned a twice daily ATR42 service before they went down, have'nt heard anything about Eastern starting one though. They may chose to base some J31s at MAN and start a new base there though, serving Norwich, Humberside, Newcastle and possibly, Teesside, who knows. On the Newcastle front, Lufthansa are keen to expand their operations at NCL, a FRA CRJ service would be great, i had to travel to manchester to get mine!

LH are moving their NCL-DUS service over to Eurowings (back again), with CRJ. No LH expansion into NCL so maybe they are not that keen. However, they will be adding a third EDI-FRA for this summer.

Nice to see OA staying at MAN, though Malev finishes. And is the Fedex A310 cargo service confirmed yet (MAN-CDG)? This is as well as any maintenance flights operating into MAN/FLS.

Fedex A310s replacing the Sh360 feeder flights? Haven't heard of that one. And to be frank, I'd be very surprised if this came off!
