Cardiff Sunday flights added to Newcastle and Aberdeen

Flybe is introducing Sunday flights operated by its franchise partner, Eastern Airways, to both its Cardiff to Newcastle and Aberdeen air services.

Following the re-introduction of the Cardiff – Aberdeen link this month, the operator will commence Sunday services from Cardiff to Newcastle and Aberdeen from 12 January 2020.

Sunday services will complement the daily weekday flights provided to Newcastle and Aberdeen from Cardiff.  Fares start from £99 one way, including taxes and charges and Sunday services are available now to book at flybe.com

Roger Hage, Eastern Airways’ General Manager Commercial and Operations, said: “By adding Sunday services, these flights will not only appeal to business travellers heading to Newcastle or Aberdeen in advance of Monday, but also leisure passengers taking advantage of short breaks or sporting events in both vibrant regions.  These additional services also complement our Cardiff – Anglesey service and Flybe’s Cardiff network.”

Deb Bowen Rees, Chief Executive Officer of Cardiff Airport, added: “This is a great addition to the network operated by the Flybe and Eastern Airways franchise partnership. Connectivity within the UK is key, and it’s fantastic to see even more choice being added for our customers, so they can enjoy weekend travel and explore fantastic destinations on their doorstep.”

Eastern Airways has been providing scheduled services from Cardiff Airport since 2006, and also operates twice daily weekday flights from Cardiff to Anglesey.

On board Eastern Airways operated flights, passengers are offered a full range of complimentary drinks and snacks. Regular customers can also benefit from discounted route passes offering savings of up to 40%.
