It will be the first ever route between the northern city and London City Airport.

Newcastle International Airport has added a new twice-a-day direct service to London City Airport. It is available to book now and begins on Monday 7th January 2019 and will depart at 8:05am and at 5:50pm on weekdays, returning at 9:45am and 7:30pm, with a single evening Sunday flight.

The flight will be operated by Eastern Airways, a franchise partner of Flybe. They have referred to it as a “business focused” route. The journey time will be sliced from three hours by train to 70 minutes.

Nick Jones, chief executive at Newcastle International Airport, stated:

“This brand new service to London City Airport will offer a direct link from the region right into the heart of London. With 11 flights per week across 6 days we hope that this will be very well received in both the business and leisure communities.”
