Don’t think there’s much left in the wreckage of EA for RL to do anything with now unfortunately. The business model is all but a dead animal with the company reported to be making huge losses daily.

Good News

'Is there ever any good news to come out of EA, makes me wonder how they've kept going for so long........'

Perhaps people should be careful what they wish for. At least under the previous shareholders, whatever people may think, Eastern where never in the situation they appear to be in today

Virtually impossible to make sense of any of that EGPO, therefore impossible to give a reply or opinion.

So a scattered but still enough potential customers.

Good road links , if not mistaken there is a railway line like at Doncaster close to the runway ( so I'm told) - not seem personally.
But if so , potential airport station.

So why no new Routes and that Terminal has not seen any changes in interior offerings , facilities b, for years .

I understand it's big customer is and are the oil flights (!side question , do they run thevATR direct from Huy to Scatsa? Or Norwich - Scatsa? .

I recall when I first lived in North lincs , they had Ryanair I could swear it was a base if memory serves, I think they served Dublin and Alicante?.

But why no growth to bring in revenue to please the shareholders .
And why no pressure from Northlincs council who I thought did at one point have a stake in HUY.

I ask as Eastern too had their stake innit too so again why no extra services.
Eg Dublin , Brussels , ( unserved all over Yorkshire) Copenhagen, but ideally with better timed flights , more frequently .
And cheaper! . Imho they should be doing something to bring in the cash and stop the Rot. I feel for the staff , the aircrews . Can't be a nice place to work.
Eastern's Owners, Bristows, if you read financials, are not in a good place, share value down to just over $1.00 the other day

ch-aviation.com have the article stating that Eastern is adding wet leased E145 capacity. Unfortunately not a full member so can’t read the full article. Does anyone have any further details on the wet lease agreement?

its a ‘nothing’ story, it’s just CH taking 4 weeks to realise that the BM lease on ABZ-NWI has been transferred over to LM.

Indeed. They're all the routes operating under the Flybe franchise and bookable on Flybe.com

There is of course the Aberdeen to Scatsta route and a number of regular charter flights they operate for the likes of BAE, Airbus, MOD etc.

It's a shame more couldn't have been done to make better use of the Flybe franchise and brand in launching more niche routes.

They lost the Airbus contract to Flybmi, now Loganair do the Airbus contract
Think they still do the MOD one, not sure about the BAE one

I think you will find that although booked through Flybe.com these are all original Eastern Airways routes

Why don't they use their own stuff on NWI-ABZ instead of using Loganair??

afraid the NWI base was closed and hence the BMI operation came into affect
now being operated by former BM 145 by Loganair very confussing

Looks like Eastern has sold one of there ERJ 145 GCIYX, but how many of the fleet now are in a serviceable state?

It might be returning to Bristol Nigeria, I read somewhere that it is going back on the Nigerian Register.
