Eastern Airways is primarily known for its UK domestic routes, so it was a surprise to see it launch two new routes to Gibraltar.
Even more surprising is where the flights are going from:
- Southampton to Gibraltar will launch on 24th May
- Birmingham to Gibraltar will launch on 28th May
There will be two flights per week on each route. It will be operated with an Embraer 190, which is the same aircraft that British Airways uses from London City Airport. Eastern acquired three E190 aircraft last Summer.
Wizz Air launched a Gibraltar route from Luton last year, and British Airways and easyJet also serve it.
Eastern is not part of any airline alliance or reward scheme so there is no option for booking these services with points.
