Perhaps they have another Embraer 170 coming to the fleet as with only 1 currently, then it wont be able to operate a MME - ALC - MME and a SOU - MAN - SOU at similar times on Mondays

I would imagine that Eastern could be taking on ex Flybe crew to work some of their new routes, once they have been through the health and safety issues, they should be able to fly within a short period of time.

They're hardly pushing the boat out - they'll got very good deals from the airports involved, re-instated the leases of two a/c that have been parked up for months as nobody else wants them and also using the under utilised ERJ-145's - I don't think they're renowned as being big payers, either...

I'm hearing that they definitely haven't got a deal at Southampton for the Newcastle route.

Roger Hage, Eastern Airways’ General Manager Commercial & Operations, said: “Given the current Covid-19 reductions in travel, we have held back from announcing a number of route start dates at both Southampton and Belfast City as determining these dates isn’t feasible in the immediacy.

“We can confirm Southampton-Dublin is among seven routes we have held off announcing but once there is a clear view when services will return to normal, we will confirm all routes and start dates to help ensure regional connectivity around the UK is expanded, especially given this will be paramount to the UK’s economic recovery.”

Hopefully CWL will be one but will but guess they have more important things to worry about at present and wish them and all the other airlines all the best during this uncertain time

None of Eastern Airways flights appear to be bookable, even the HUY to ABZ. Are they still operating?
