Eastern Airways, a franchise partner of Flybe, is to take over operating the Aberdeen to London City route on Monday 7th May.
The continuation of the route will result in the same weekday frequency of two flights a day in each direction and also a Sunday service with all flights bookable at Flybe.
Long term, the route will be operated by a 76-seat Embraer 170 jet, but will initially start with a 50-seat Saab 2000 aircraft.
The fast jet connection will offer quicker flight times of 1 hour 15 minutes between Aberdeen and London City Airport.
On board flights, passengers will be offered complimentary drinks and snacks. Regular customers can also benefit from zonal route passes offering 35% savings.
Eastern Airways has been operating flights from Aberdeen since 1997 and provides a network of services from the airport to the UK regions.
