Newcastle Airport Gets New Capital Link
This week saw the launch of a brand new route from Newcastle airport, to London City.
The flight, which is operated Flybe’s franchise partner Eastern Airways, is expected to carry over 17,000 passengers during 2019.
As the only North East connection with Central London, the route is expected to be a big hit with business travellers heading to Central London and Canary Wharf business district. Along with tourism for those wanting a city break in the centre of our capital.
To mark the occasion, an iconic red London Routemaster bus was driven onto the runway.
With 11 flights per week, you're not far from the 70 minute connection between Newcastle and heart of London.With the Docklands Light Railway operating from inside the terminal; this very frequent driverless train into Bank station in Central London, via Canary Wharf, will have you in the office or out shopping in no time.
