Flybe has agreed to continue its franchise deal with a fellow regional airline to provide flights from Norwich to Aberdeen.

From October 29 passengers with Eastern Airways service to Scotland will be able to buy tickets through the Flybe website with the new contract seeing the flights given a BE flight code – meaning fliers will be able to go on to other Flybe destinations with one ticket.

Eastern Airways provides up to three flights each weekday for Flybe, plus a Sunday service from Norwich to Aberdeen, connecting with onward services to destinations including Stornoway, Wick John O’Groats, Stavanger and Bergen.

Mathew Herzberg, Eastern Airways head of commercial, said: “The franchise partnership will help to broaden the sales distribution of our route network through the Flybe brand and reach a wider audience of customers who are new to the Eastern Airways operated services.”
