Eastern Airways moves its Paris flights from the UK to Charles de Gaulle

Humberside-based regional carrier Eastern Airways is moving its two Paris routes from Orly to Charles de Gaulle as they enter their second year.

The two routes covered are from East Midlands Airport and Southampton Airport.

Both are operated in partnership with Air France which may help explain how it was able to get slots at CdG.

Eastern Airlines moves Paris flights to Charles de Gaulle

Flights, using Eastern’s 72-seat ATR aircraft, will operate into Terminal 2. The move will take place on 31st March at the start of the summer timetable.

You can book on the Eastern Airways website or via the Air France site. Booking via the latter allows you to include onward connections on Air France on the same ticket.

There is one piece of bad news. Eastern could not get an additional slot at Charles de Gaulle to move its Cardiff to Paris Orly flight, which means that the route will close on 30th March.

    Beware of JAL if you’re someone who needs it to be relatively cool to sleep. They seem to be well known for their hot cabins and my recent flight with them HEL-HND confirmed that I (probably) won’t be flying with them long haul again, which is a shame given the otherwise very good product and service. It felt almost sauna-like at times, very uncomfortable!

      I had heard this too and was worried but last week my flight from London was fine. Apparently you can ask them to lower the temperature if necessary and they will.

    Does this mean you’ll soon be able to buy connecting flights from Southampton to the entire air France network?

  • Eric says:

    JAL doesn’t fly to IAH; DFW will be their second destination for the new A350

  • Mike says:

    Are JAL using the awful 17 inch across Recaro seats on their A350 in economy?

  • Jmac says:

    I think it’s Eastern Airways rather than Eastern Airlines

  • Jan M says:

    Another nail on Cardiff Airport’s coffin. 😔
