Eastern Airways changes terminals at Birmingham Airport
Thursday 27, January 2011
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.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
