Dh has just started a new job in Lowestoft and is looking for cheap ways to get home to the north east when he gets a weekend off.

I've tried googling but haven't come up with anything. Anyone from the area know if there is an airline that flies to Newcastle please.

Newcastle is really difficult to get to using budget airlines. My family live there and we are in Holland. There used to be a cheap run by one of the no frills airlines (sky one perhaps?)but it was pulled although all the other routes stayed open hmm. KLM runs operates the only flights now and they are too expensive so we have to travel by overnight ferry.

Sorry, this is no help at all but at least your post has been bumped and someone might have some more useful advice smile

Lowestoft is 2 hours from Stansted.

Easy Jet fly from Stansted to Newcastle.

Example prices...
London Stansted to Newcastle
dep. Fri 13 Mar 19:20
arr. Fri 13 Mar 20:25
£46.99 per person (incl. taxes and charges)

Newcastle to London Stansted
dep. Sun 15 Mar 19:55
arr. Sun 15 Mar 21:10
£51.99 per person(incl. taxes and charges)

Total price - £98.98

If he can't make the Friday night flight, there is one at 08.40 on Saturday morning.
It gets into Newcastle at 09.45 and is half the price of the Friday night flight.

Thanks you vlr, DH finishes work at 1pm on a Friday and has to be back for 7am Monday morning so he would have to leave on the Sunday. Not a lot of time reallysadand he would still have to get to Stansted.

It's about an hour from Great Yarmouth (which has a heliport I think) & the same from Norwich

Does that help at all?

Sounds like an alternative Katy, wonder how much that would add up to thoughhmm
