Eastern Airways adds extra LBIA-Southampton flight

Tue, 10 Feb, 2009

Business travellers will soon be able to benefit from an additional flight between Leeds Bradford International Airport and Southampton Airport.

Eastern Airways is adding a flight to its service between the two hubs from February 16th.

The new service will depart from Leeds Bradford at 14:20 GMT, taking one hour and ten minutes to reach the south coast.

Passengers can already travel from the Yorkshire airport to Southampton at 06:50 and 05:40, but the 10:15 flight will no longer be operated.

Chris Holliday, chief operating officer at Eastern Airways, said the change will allow greater flexibility to the airline's customers.

"Customer feedback is very important to us and, as a result, we are making this adjustment to our schedules to meet the needs of our business travellers," he added.

Eastern Airways was recently rated by the Civil Aviation Authority as the most punctual airline operating at Birmingham and Newcastle airports.
