The new business-focused flights commence on January 7, with two morning departures and two evening departures Monday to Saturday and a single service on Sundays.
“We are very pleased to launch this new direct central London air service on behalf of Flybe, adding to their expanding London City network and to the Aberdeen-London City service we already operate,” says Roger Hage, Eastern Airways’ General Manager Commercial & Operations.
“We believe it’s vital for major UK cities to have direct, fast and convenient air links between the regions and City of London.”
Hage continues: “This route provides a direct link for our customers from Newcastle and the north east region, from where they can quickly access Canary Wharf, the City of London and the underground network with ease, helping business and leisure travellers alike.”
Richard Knight, Chief Operating Officer at Newcastle Airport, adds: “For a number of years, we have received countless requests for a direct route into the heart of London – so we are thrilled to be launching this service for both business and leisure passengers.
“With a flight time of just over an hour, complimentary on-board service and the airport’s low security-queuing times, the North East travelling public will be able to access the London market quickly and efficiently thanks to the new route from Flybe.
Fares start from £79.99 one way including taxes and charges. Regular passenger can also benefit from discounted route passes offering savings of up to 35%.
