According to the article below, Eastern Airways have announced that they no longer plan to operate a number of routes from MME and that there flights to Alicante are being transferred to Ryanair and flights to Belfast City and London Heathrow have been transferred to Loganair

If you're interested in Eastern Airways, then what's happening on Teesside is of significant interest.

According to Twitter could be 2 new routes BHX - GIB and SOU - GIB

Most likely will be on E170, not known if the E190 still coming to Eastern

So must say this all feels a bit Flybe. Domestic airline, high fares, relatively unknown to most, flying Jetstreams mostly now will appear on the international scene flying to GIB, hardly the business of a regional airline. What about MME ALC, is that still going ahead? I wish the company well.

I wonder what a strategy meeting looks like at Eastern Airways...

I imagine jelly, ice cream, kids, dartboards and model aeroplanes....

The GIB Government have announced over the recent weeks that they aim to entice another airline into GIB - they have most probably dangled a big carrot in front of Eastern with some incentives if the rumours are true that they are basing a E170 at GIB.

No one knows if this is just a rumour or fact at present and both BHX & SOU are mentioned....surely there would have to be another destination thrown in to maximise the use of the aircraft ?

The ATRs have moved back out of Teesside leaving no based aircraft. Have the engineers and other staff that were moved in this time last year moved on.
