Eastern Airways (Eastern), the UK’s independent regional airline, celebrated its inaugural Cornwall Newquay – London Gatwick route on December 15. The flight was operated with one of Eastern’s ATR72-600 turboprop aircraft, fueled with sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) supplied by Air bp. The airline underlined its commitment to reduce carbon emissions, backing calls for closer collaborative work between industry and government to lower the cost and widen availability of SAF.
Restoring a vital air connection, Eastern’s Cornwall-to-London flights will increase to a day return frequency Monday to Friday from January 17, bolstered by twice-daily service on Sundays, from February 12. From the end of March, the airline will offer twice-daily Saturday services.Email Post to a Friend
