Eastern Airways has purchased Plymouth-based airline, Air Southwest. About 150 people are working with Air Southwest, which lands at the regional airports of the UK, along with the Channel Islands and Republic of Ireland.
After the profits of this airline fell down by £600,000 in May, the owner Sutton Harbour had decided to put it on sale.
The staff will continue to work under Air Southwest, which will carry on its flights under the existing brand name.
The airline came into existence, when the British Government had decided to pull out its flights to the airline South West in 2003.
Eastern Airways is based in Humberside and it has 420 staff members working under it. It consists of 30 aircrafts, which serve 21 destinations in the Norway, UK, France and Ireland.
"Being part of a larger airline will bring stability to Air Southwest and that is good news for air travel to and from the far South West, and for Plymouth and Newquay airports", said Chief Executive of the Sutton Harbour Group, Nigel Godefroy.
According to the Managing Director of Eastern Airways, Richard Lake, customers of their airline appreciate them well and so the Company should make sure to retain the loyalty of the customers, who expect exceptional services and value for their money.
