Award-winning Eastern Airways has announced that it is set to launch its first flights from Liverpool Airport, linking the north-west hub to Aberdeen and Southampton. From July 6th the regional carrier will offer three flights to the cities from Liverpool every weekday. Eastern Airways' chief operating officer, Chris Holliday, said: 'Launching our first scheduled flights from Liverpool is a major milestone. 'We're providing the fastest links from Liverpool to Aberdeen and Southampton, which are significantly quicker than alternative road and rail journeys. By offering three flights each weekday, business travellers will be able to spend a day in Aberdeenshire or in the south of England without the need for overnight accommodation. ' From the same date, Eastern Airways will be increasing its frequency of flights from Aberdeen to Southampton from two to five services each weekday. The carrier's expansion this year will boost its number of routes from Aberdeen to 13, meaning it will operate more flights from the hub than any other airline. Eastern Airways serves international destinations from Aberdeen, including Oslo and Stavanger in Norway.
