Eastern Airways to launch Leeds/Bradford – Southampton service on January 20

Eastern Airways’ (Humberside) new service from Leeds Bradford International Airport to Southampton, aimed primarily at business travellers, launches on Monday January 20, 2014.

The UK’s second largest regional airline will offer three flights each weekday in each direction, as well as a Sunday service to ensure business communities in Yorkshire and on the south coast of England have a high frequency air service enabling them to do business.

A convenient early morning departure from Leeds Bradford at 6.50 am allows for a full day in Southampton and south coast region before returning back to Yorkshire just after 5 pm or 7.40 pm on the same day.

The scheduled services depart Leeds Bradford on weekdays at 6.50 am, 10.20 am and 5.10 pm, arriving in Southampton at 7.50 am, 11.20 am and 6.10 pm respectively.  Flights leave Southampton at 8.20 am, 4.05 pm and 6.40 pm, landing in Leeds Bradford at 9.20 am, 5.05 pm and 7.40 pm.

Sunday services leave Leeds Bradford at 4.15 pm arriving in Southampton at 5.15 pm, then return at 5.45 pm landing into Leeds Bradford at 6.45 pm.

Eastern Airways has been providing scheduled flights from Leeds Bradford since 2003, and also provides a choice of daily weekday services from the airport to Aberdeen.

A dedicated fast track security channel is offered at Leeds Bradford and Southampton airports for all Eastern Airways passengers to avoid any queues at security search, enabling the airline to close check-in just 30 minutes before the departure time.  Complimentary drinks and snacks are offered on board the aircraft and passengers are not charged for check-in, baggage or choice of seat.

A network of services across to 20 airports in the UK, Norway and France is operated by the airline on a fleet of 30 regional aircraft.
