Happy to stand corrected here but I thought those two aircraft were leased directly to Eastern by Nordic Aviation Capital. Donít think Bristow are/were involved but I canít say with certainty so will defer to anyone who can !

Both aircraft were owned directly by Bristows but subsequently sold to NAC on a sale and leaseback arrangement when Bristows needed more liquidy as the aircraft were part of a compensation package for the H225s. Eastern have taken over the leases of the two aircraft after the divorce from Bristows.

Looks like the 2 aforementioned AT72's are currently making their way from ABZ to SOU.

Looks like the two Jetstreamís have gone to Aberdeen to operate the BP oil flights to Sumburgh which seem to have restarted. Do they still have crews in ABZ?

There are still crews in ABZ purely for the BP ops, others went Loganair and the rest were made redundant.

Sad news for the crews involved. Could they not move south with the ATRs?

They were given that option but Easterns compensation package to relocate is pitiful added to the fact that SOU has opened and closed so many times not many were willing to take the risk.

Looks like still getting 1 Embraer E190?
As ER-ECC was flown from Chisinau to Humberside then an hour later flown to East Midlands Airport to be painted

They could stick Bob Mortimer's face on a jet and call it the Shooting Star.

The frame that went from HUY-EMA is now listed in Skyworld: https://www.skyworld.co.uk/wp-conten...2020-KSB-2.pdf

Maybe not for Eastern after all?
