Airline launches new Route Pass product to benefit regular travellers

DATE: 12-02-13

A new route pass offering 25% discount for travellers booking four return flights has been launched by Eastern Airways across its network, including services from Newcastle International Airport.

The new 4-4-3 Route Pass product initiative introduced by the UK’s second largest regional airline will benefit regular commuters when they purchase four flights for the price of three on any Eastern Airways route.

As part of this new product offering, fares are fully flexible, there are no change fees and passengers will automatically gain access to a number of airport executive lounges.

Eastern Airways provides day return options on many of its routes across the UK and Norway. It also offers fast track security channels at the busier airports it operates from, a fully inclusive service including allocated seating, free hold baggage allowance, along with complimentary drinks and snacks.

Kay Ryan, Eastern Airways commercial director, said: “We’re offering some fantastic savings through this new initiative which also gives customers full flexibility to make as many changes as they want for travel dates and they receive VIP treatment with executive lounge access at applicable airports. We expect the new 4-4-3 Route Pass will prove very popular with business commuters and travellers that make frequent journeys.”

Eastern Airways also offers the Zonal Route Pass providing six flights from the price of four.

The 4-4-3 Route Pass is bookable through travel agents and via Eastern Airways Reservations on 08703 669100.

The airline first started operating scheduled flights from Newcastle in 2003 and provides a choice of daily services to Aberdeen, Birmingham, Cardiff and Stavanger (Norway) from the airport.

Eastern Airways provides a network of services flying from 20 airports in the UK, Norway and France. It also has three 50-seater Embraer 145 jets, two 37-seater Embraer 135 jets, eight 50-seater Saab 2000 aircraft and is the largest operator of 29-seater British Aerospace Jetstream 41 aircraft in the world with 18.
