  • Eastern Airways has re-introduced its services between Leeds Bradford (LBA) and Southampton (SOU) on 20 January, having previously operated the route in competition with flybe up until September 2011. flybe withdrew from the UK domestic city pair the previous day, having operated 13 weekly flights in the last seven days of operation. Eastern will fly the 325-kilometre sector 16 times weekly with its 29-seat Jetstream J41s and will face no direct competition. Kay Ryan, Eastern Airways’ Commercial Director, said: “We’re offering a frequent business schedule with an all-inclusive on board service, both of which are equally important to business travellers.” Tony Hallwood, Leeds Bradford Airport’s Aviation Development & Marketing Director, said: “I am delighted that Eastern Airways are expanding their services at Leeds Bradford Airport by introducing Southampton, an important route for the airport. Regional businesses across Yorkshire will welcome the frequent, well-timed weekday schedule which allows a full business day in both cities.”
