Eastern Airways (T3/EZE) is launching flights from Teesside Airport (MME/EGNV) to London Heathrow (LHR/EGLL) in September 2020.

The daily jet service will provide a crucial North-South link connecting the Tees Valley area, which includes Hartlepool, Darlington and Middlesborough, with the Captial helping with important business links.

Roger Hage, Eastern Airways’ General Manager Commercial & Operations, said: “As the UK’s Regional Airline, the opportunity for Eastern Airways to connect Teesside to London Heathrow, the UK’s primary hub for worldwide connections is significant in the regions’ economic prosperity and economic recovery.

Offering an initial daily e-Jet operated service helps add further London capacity and makes reaching the capital or getting to the North East a little over an hour away, with the array of connections world-wide this opens up. We look forward with our partners at Teesside International Airport and London Heathrow Airport to restoring such a major air-link missing for over a decade.”

The flight will be operated by a 76-seat Embraer E170 aircraft.
