Flybe is to launch a new direct route from London City airport to Newcastle from Monday 7 January 2019.
Flights operate twice daily on weekdays and once a day on Sundays. This will be the only direct air link between London and Newcastle after BA’s service from Heathrow.
The service will be operated by Eastern Airways under Flybe’s livery. Eastern Airways also operates London City – Aberdeen on behalf of Flybe which, from Monday 7 January 2019, will operate via Newcastle.
The flight time is 65 minute from London and 70 minutes from Newcastle. This compares to a journey time of around 2 hours and 50 minutes on the train.
At the moment flights up to Friday 29 March 2019 are only on sale. However, flights beyond Sunday 31 March 2019 should be on sale in the coming weeks.

One thought on “Flybe launches London City – Newcastle”
When I saw LCY Flybe I immediately thought they may use the plane from the Exeter route, then read the new route was ran by eastern.
