Aer Arann

Dublin-based, but British-owned (Stobart Group), Aer Arann plans to double annual passengers to over 2m during the next five years.  Flying as an Aer Lingus franchise the ATR 72 operator currently offers 550 flights weekly across 27 routes throughout Ireland, the UK and France.  The carrier is adding 50 jobs at the present time and taking delivery of new ATR 72 aircraft.

The airline has overseen a 32% rise in Aer Lingus Regional passenger numbers in the past 12 months and this year is on track to carry in excess of 1.2m passengers.

Aer Arann recently moved all flight arrivals and departures to Terminal 2 at Dublin Airport, and now operates from the same terminal as Aer Lingus’ mainline services.  The move facilitates Aer Lingus Regional customers linking to Aer Lingus’ transatlantic services in Terminal 2 – a significant and growing part of the business which is on target to bring 100,000 passengers through Dublin’s newest terminal this year.

The airline currently does not have a permanent Chief Executive Officer, Seán Brogan acting in the role with Simon Fagan, Chief Commercial Officer; and Davina Pratt, Chief Operating Officer. www.aerarann.com
