Eastern Air Services (Port Macquarie) doubled its network to Lord Howe Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site around 600 kilometres east of mainland Australia, through the addition of a new service from Newcastle Williamtown on November 14, 2020.

The Australian regional specialist started services to the island from Port Macquarie in October 2019. It plans to add a third route to Lord Howe, from Coolangatta/Gold Coast, in January 2021, Chief Executive Christian Corse told ch-aviation.

"The opening of interstate flights has conjured a real sense of optimism in the region. With Queensland borders now open and Victoria not far away, as an airport, we are thrilled to once again play an important role in the lives of our community. Adding an exciting new destination to our schedule, particularly one as iconic as Lord Howe, will only heighten that sense of hope," Newcastle airport's chief executive, Peter Cock, said.

The airline uses Beech (twin turboprop) King Air 200 for both routes. According to the Australian aircraft register, it currently operates three such aircraft.

Eastern Air Services is the second airline to serve Lord Howe Island after Qantas (QF, Sydney Kingsford Smith), which operates from Sydney Kingsford Smith.
