Its the only one eastern operate outside of the UK.
And the route is going to continue but will be flown by Amelia Aviation and will still be subsidised.

G-MAJZ and G-MAJU have both been at Cranfield since October, however both just sat outside and don't appear to be getting worked on judging from photos. Any idea what they're doing there?

Saab 2000 G-CERY was "cancelled by CAA" this week.

Active fleet down to; 2x ATR 72s, 2x E145s, 3x Saabs and 6x Jetream 41s

By G00gling G-MAJZ Cranfield, a decent photo taken 8 days ago appears. Not so much clarity with JU, but there is a pic at what looks like Cranfield

JT back in the air this week after nearly a month at MME. New engine fitted in December but took them a while to get it airborne after high powered engine runs. Three or four planned air tests which didnít go ahead.

Looks like JY is u/s so down to 5 serviceable 41ís at the moment, which doesnít cover their operations

Any idea what are Eastern's plans for the ERJ 145 once the Paris - Rodez service ends next weekend ?

Eastern

Eastern down to 4 41s. JA/JB/JD/JL.

JY has just been scrapped. No word yet on JU/JZ which are at cranfield.

SK which is in rodez is purportedly going into LBA once the last flights have been flown.

Eastern Airways are set to re-acquire Embraer 170 this month and add a further 3x larger Embraer 190s later this year.

why not? New owner, who when owned before with his partner had a profitable business.

Pure speculation but could it not be to replace Flybe on critical routes? Timing seems a little to much coincidence.

very much coincidence given Eastern wouldn't have know exact BE finances or know outcome of potential rescue plan?

Perhaps eastern airways have already got in place work for the 170 and the 3 x 190's that are coming to the fleet.

Didn't they assist BA Cityflyer before ????

I wonder how quickly Eastern get the fares revenue from FlyBe, given that the latter somehow owed £106m of APD.

The E170 isn't new - it's the same one they had before that's been in Naples for more than a year as apparently they tried and tried to get it into the specific condition to give it back to its owner.

The latest stuff filed at Companies House is interesting though. Both bits of Eastern made losses last year but I guess that's not too relevant as it was before the buy-out from Bristow and the lump of cash that came with it. More interesting are the filings before Christmas when the five Embraer 135s and 145s were pledged as security for a loan made into Eastern in October by a company which looks to be the private holding vehicle of Eastern's owner - so if the loan isn't repaid, guess what happens to the aircraft! If the entire lump of cash from Bristow was gone by October and they needed more money, things must be difficult?
