AN airline has revealed it wants to start flights from Edinburgh and Glasgow to Aberdeen – but says it would need government help.

Eastern Airways said it had held “useful” talks with the Scottish Government agency Transport Scotland.

Eastern director Kay Ryan said: “We are always interested in developing routes, but there needs to be support from the government.”

Business leaders have said air links from the Capital to Aberdeen could provide travellers with a choice and help cut journey times.
