Eastern Airways has stepped in to restore important airlinks to Belfast and Newcastle.

It comes following the shock announcement late on Friday that City Wing had ceased trading leaving hundreds of passengers stranded.

Eastern issued a statement today saying they will offer a daily service starting (tomorrow/today Monday 13th March).

The new service comes at a premium though with fares starting at £99 one way - however Eastern offer complimentry checked baggage and an onboard bar and refreshment service.

Flights will depart for Belfast at 11.05am and Newcastle at 1.25pm.

City Wing also flew to Blackpool, Gloucester and Glasgow, although there is no word yet as to a replacment service.
