Eastern Airways changes terminals at Birmingham Airport


Eastern Airways will be switching all of its flights at Birmingham Airport from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 from Tuesday 8 February 2011.


The move by the UK regional airline coincides with the recent opening of the airport’s new centralised security facility.  However, all Eastern Airways passengers will have access to a dedicated fast track security channel to avoid any queues at security search.


A prominent new check-in position in Terminal 2 will be available for Eastern Airways passengers checking in for its three times a day weekday service departing from Birmingham to Newcastle.


Roger Hage, Eastern Airways ground operations manager, said: “Terminal 2 is primarily used by airlines flying to domestic and European short haul destinations and it makes sense for our cross country business-focused flights to operate from this terminal. This switch helps reduce the time and distance between check-in and gate and emphasises Eastern Airways commitment to offering a convenient quality airport product to mirror the complimentary in-flight service.”


Passengers flying on the airline’s services from Birmingham to Newcastle will benefit from check-in closing just 20 minutes before the scheduled departure times of 8.30am, 4.10pm and 7.10pm. Fares on the route start from £75 one way, including taxes and charges.


Eastern Airways first started services from Birmingham in 2003 and currently offers 15 departures a week. The airline is the UK’s second largest regional carrier and has a fleet of 30 aircraft flying from 21 airports in the UK, Ireland, Norway and France.
