Eastern Airways celebrates 10th anniversary of Birmingham – Newcastle flights

Eastern Airways is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its service between Birmingham and Newcastle.

The UK’s second largest regional airline first started operating the route in 2003 following British Airways decision to withdraw from the route and now offers up to 24 flights each week with timings aimed at business travellers.

The domestic air link is used by a wide cross section of businesses including those from engineering, law, finance, government, IT, communications and manufacturing industry sectors, helping to forge strong business links between the two regions.

More than 17,000 flights have been operated between Birmingham and Newcastle since Eastern Airways started the route.
