Anglesey-Cardiff flights continue after Flybe collapse

Flights between Anglesey and Cardiff are continuing as normal following the collapse of Flybe.

Eastern Airways, which runs the twice-daily airlink between North and South Wales, says the service is not affected after the airline fell into administration on Wednesday.

The operator has been running as a franchise, although booking services were run by Flybe. Currently, bookings are only being taken by phone.

A spokeseperson said: ”Passengers booked to travel on Flybe flights operated by Eastern Airways, including the Cardiff – Anglesey service, are to check-in as normal with booking confirmation as flights will be departing as normal.”

”We will honour all bookings today and tomorrow and revised details for bookings will be advised via our website in due course.”

”As an independent airline, we shall restore the former stand-alone booking processes and ensure no effect to the regional air services we operate.”

Last year, Eastern, based in Lincolnshire, won a four-year contract from the Welsh Government to continue flights to and from Cardiff Airport until 2023.

The operator originally stepped in to takeover the route after CityLink collapsed in 2017.
