New year Oslo-Aberdeen link planned by Eastern Airways

New flights between Oslo and Aberdeen have been unveiled by a leading European low-cost carrier for the new year.

Eastern Airways is to offer cheap flights from Aberdeen to the Norwegian capital from January 12th 2009.

Flights will depart from Aberdeen six days per week, leaving at 10:20 and arriving at 13:05. On Sundays flights will depart at 12:20 from Aberdeen. There will be no services on Saturday.

Graeme Ross, Eastern Airways’ Scotland director, said: "Our first service to Norway’s capital will help to further strengthen business links between the city and Aberdeen."

The carrier will use a small 50-seat Saab 2000 aircraft for its services between the two cities and brings the total number of routes offered from Aberdeen to 12.

Flybe recently announced that it will be introducing new routes to France and Germany in 2009 from Aberdeen, which is Scotland’s third largest airport.

This could provide a boost of up to one million passengers at the hub.
