Eastern Airways begins Newcastle, Belfast services

Flights on two of the routes operated by CityWing will resume today under a different carrier.

Eastern Airways confirmed at the weekend that it will take over the Newcastle and Belfast City services.

The news comes after CityWing announced it had gone into liquidation last week after the airline operating its flights was grounded.

Passengers who had been due to travel with CityWing will have to book new flights with Eastern Airways if they still want to travel on these routes.

So far there has been no announcement on the future of the Gloucester, Glasgow and Blackpool services, which were also operated by CityWing.
