About us

Eastern Airways was formed in 1997 and moved quickly, prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, to return to its standalone booking facilities following its former franchise partner, Flybe, going into administration in March this year.

The Humberside Airport-based carrier provides a network of routes from airports including Aberdeen, Anglesey, Belfast City, Cardiff, Dublin, Humberside, Leeds Bradford, Manchester, Newquay, Southampton,Teesside International, as well as Nantes and Rennes in France, and Gibraltar. 

With a long-standing partnership with the key Global Distribution Systems, Eastern (T3) flights can be found by travel agencies across the UK, and also worldwide through their partnership with Hahn Air (X1), as well as through a number of online aggregators and NDC portals, through their new partnerships with market leaders such as Skyscanner, Travelfusion and Ypsilon.
