As Eastern Airways have routes across all four UK home nations, we have awaited the guidance and requirements to be issued by all governments so that we can adopt a ‘clear message’ across all our UK and international routes and offer a 'clear policy' that will avoid confusion on flights even if different UK countries adopting varied Covid rules and requirements.
Roger Hage, GM for Eastern Airway’s said: "Safety and security of passengers and crews will always be our top priority. In offering a clear and consistent policy to require mask use across all our UK and international route network, we are providing both the assurance and confidence our customers are asking for, now as much as for the last year given Eastern Airways as the UK’s regional airline has flown continuously throughout the pandemic. We will continue with extensive on-board Covid cleaning measures on all aircraft and customer contact points. We will therefore continue to require all passengers to wear a face-covering throughout any Eastern Airways flight unless they are medically exempt. This will be kept under regular review and follow the varied but combined UK nation’s guidance and communicate future changes as and when the time is right. This includes our international services such as Birmingham and Southampton to Gibraltar as it does newly commencing services such as Southampton-Dublin alongside our extensive UK domestic network which includes serving all four home nations of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.”
