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

I believe they're going down the Norwegian route - pictures of famous Teessiders!

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?

Blimey, Eastern have more cobbled together liveries than BE. Not going to help sell the brand for future expansion plans!

It's a fair point... compare Eastern's brand with what Blue Islands have done to relaunch themselves. With BI and Loganair now entering into a codeshare, you've got a combination of two different and distinct brands, each with a strong and obvious home market.
In contrast Eastern have a mishmash of aircraft types, many aircraft unpainted, probably fairly low brand awareness amongst the general public, and quick expansion into lots of previously unserved airports. I really hope they make it work, but right now the BI/Loganair combo looks like the slicker and more recognisable operation in marketing terms.

With three E190's coming in I assume they have something lined up for them. It'd be an odd time to be adding 100-seat jets to a fleet that has been restricted small aircraft dedicated to regional flying. It will be interesting to see what.
