Eastern Airways launches new Dijon flights

Eastern Airways takes its regional airline network to France

If you’re planning on living and working in France, then a new domestic airline service could help. UK carrier, Eastern Airways, has established a new base at Dijon Bourgogne airport, with its new domestic flights launching later this month.

There will be services to Bordeaux and Toulouse (from 20 and 27 September respectively), and both services will comprise two flights each weekday, as well as a Sunday service.

Chris Holliday, Eastern Airways’ chief operating officer, says: “We have specialised in UK domestic scheduled services for over 12 years. This latest venture allows us to share our expertise with the French domestic market. Our day return flights from Dijon should substantially cut down cross-country journey times for business travellers heading to Bordeaux and Toulouse.”

Meanwhile, Laurent Courbu, President of Bordeaux Chamber of Commerce and Industry states that the new service “will bring closer business ties between Burgundy and Bordeaux”, with Pascal Personne, President of the Board of Bordeaux Airport, adding that it will also “boost links between two of France’s flagship regions for tourism and fine wines.”
