FLIGHT operator Eastern Airways is increasing the frequency of its services from Hampshire’s only airport.

The operator says increasing its Aberdeen service from Southampton Airport will benefit both business travellers and those who work offshore.

From January 20, the UK’s second largest regional airline will increase scheduled services to two flights each weekday, Mondays to Thursdays, offering additional choice with morning and afternoon departures.

This latest announcement follows on from the recent news that Eastern Airways will start services from Southampton to Leeds Bradford – also on January 20.

The airport’s Jan Halliday said: ‘The addition of extra flights will be welcomed by the business community, as well as people in Aberdeen who can use the service to join the cruise ships departing from Southampton.’
