Gibraltar Rocks! New ‘Green List’ getaway from Southampton Airport

From Eastleigh to the Rock of Gibraltar in 2 hours 50 minutes, who today launched a twice weekly service from Southampton Airport to the British Overseas Territory.

Travellers to green list countries still have to take covid tests prior to travelling and on arrival but are exempt from quarantine on their return to the UK ( unless they, or a member of their party test positive.) The Gibraltarian government have recently completed vaccinating their entire population – making it a particularly destination to holiday in.

The new service was warmly welcomed by Gibraltar’s Tourism Minister, Vijay Daryanani MP and Southampton Airport Director Steve Szalay who hailed the inaugural flight as “a sign of restart and recovery after this awful pandemic.”

Roger Hage, General Manager of Eastern Airways, said:

“Being on the green list of destinations with a wealth of quality hotels, beaches, water-sports and heritage, this UK territory offers an exciting short-break destination aside from its role in UK business.”

The independent UK-based carrier was formed in 1997 and has already expanded connectivity to Belfast-City, Manchester, Leeds-Bradford, Teesside, Dublin, Nantes and Rennes from Southampton Airport

Fares start from as little as £74.99 one-way, including taxes and hold baggage as standard. The flights are available to book at www.easternairways.com.
