The UK’s regional commuter airline, Eastern Airways, announced it will deploy Embraer 135 jet aircraft on services from Aberdeen to Norway from 01-Nov-2010. Better known as an operator of Jetstream 41 models – it is the largest in the world with 20 in service – Eastern has been bucking the economic trend during the past two years by acquiring new aircraft, opening new routes and expanding organically and, latterly, inorganically, through its acquisition of Air Southwest.
The regional UK airline market, led by flybe, is a highly competitive sector which has struggled through the global financial crisis. The state of the industry (and green populism) prompted UK Transport Secretary Philip Hammond, in late Jun-2010, to comment that domestic flying in the UK “will become, in time, a thing of the past”, with air services to be increasingly replaced by fast trains. Airlines, including British Airways, Ryanair and flybe quickly rejected the comments.
