Eastern Airways is an airline based out of Humberside Airport (HUY) in England. The airline operates a fleet of 30 regional aircraft including the Jetstream 41, Embraer ERJ135 and the SAAB 2000. They were founded in 1997 and currently fly to 21 destinations.
This summer, Eastern Airways has decided to paint one of their ERJ135 in a special Union Jack livery. The “Best of British” livery was created to commemorate Her Majesty The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
“The Best of British livery will be seen all over our scheduled and charter network over the coming months, celebrating both our heritage and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, as we join in with our passengers and the rest of the country to mark this great occasion,” Kay Ryan, Eastern Airways commercial director stated in a press release.
Easter Airway’s standard livery is not bad looking, but it does look a bit boring next to the special Union Jack livery. Part of me hopes that those who are the decision makers at the airline like the special livery so much that it becomes their new standard. If not, you can at least enjoy the special livery over the summer.
