Eastern Airways has launched a new summer service from Southampton to Dijon. The regional airline will operate thrice weekly flights from 6 June. They will depart on Mondays, Fridays and Sundays using a Jetstream 41 aircraft. “This new summer service from Southampton is part of our wider development plans in Dijon to provide a UK link to the south of England,” said Kay Ryan, commercial director at Eastern Airways. The announcement follows Eastern Airways’ expansion plans in France after it set a dedicated base there in September 2010 and launched domestic flights from Dijon to Nantes.
