Eastern Airways, the regional airline which operates flights from Bristol Airport, has been named the Best Passenger Charter Airline at a prestigious industry awards ceremony in London.

The UK’s second-largest regional airline achieved the air charter industry’s most-coveted accolade at the Baltic Air Charter Association Excellence Awards yesterday at the Guildhall.

More than 130 aviation/charter industry related companies attended the event and Eastern Airways secured the top award as Best Passenger Charter Airline by beating previous winner Titan Airways and also Monarch Airlines.

The awards are judged by the charter industry’s most valued professionals who nominate for the relevant categories, including Best Passenger Charter Airline.

Eastern Airways charter customers include major international companies in the energy, aerospace and automotive sectors, blue-chip organisations, sports teams, music industry and a wide range of other business and private clients.  It also provides corporate shuttles with the provision of dedicated aircraft.

Earlier this month, the airline increased scheduled services from two to three flights each weekday on Bristol services to Leeds Bradford andAberdeen. Eastern Airways has been operating scheduled and charter services from Bristol since 2004.

The regional airline is also consistently rated one of the UK’s most punctual scheduled airlines and has a fleet of 30 aircraft flying from 21 airports in the UK, Ireland, Norway and France.
