Eastern Airways, ‘the UK’s regional airline’, as both a leading operator of UK domestic and international scheduled services also remains Europe’s leading provider of fixed-wing air services to the oil and gas sector. With long-standing support for major sports teams and corporate clients through ad-hoc capability and other operators under ACMI availability. Having operated continuously through the 2020 and 2021 pandemic both scheduled and an increasing number of ad-hoc services, destinations such as Gibraltar were added to the broad mix of operations. With an increasingly low-emission fleet and IOSA accreditation, our diverse regional capability will continue into 2022.
Founded in 1997, the operator has its own in-house EASA Part-145 maintenance organisation together with J41 TRTO with an on-site simulator. The airline was the 2014/15 winner of the ERA Airline of the Year Gold Award, having previously won other gold and silver ERA awards and has been IOSA accredited since 2018.
