Stobart Air Aer Lingus Regional

Aer Lingus Regional, the trading name of Stobart Air, has experienced 2.5% growth in the year to date, flying over 338,000 passengers in the first four months of 2015.  By summer 2015, it will operate 680 flights per week across 31 routes from 24 departures points throughout Ireland, UK, France, Germany and Netherlands.

The airline has launched a number of new routes in recent months, including Dublin – East Midlands, Dublin – Newquay Cornwall and Dublin – Doncaster Sheffield.

Aer Lingus Regional was awarded the tender to provide air services on the Public Service Obligation (PSO) routes from Kerry to Dublin and Donegal to Dublin last November.  Both have done exceptionally well, Kerry up by 37.8%, and Donegal enjoying its third consecutive month of growth, with passenger numbers up 22.1% for the month of April.

All the routes have contributed to Aer Lingus US connecting traffic through Dublin.

Commenting on the month’s figures, Martin Saxton, Chief Commercial Officer at Stobart Air, said the airline was “pleased to have experienced such a strong start in 2015.  The airline is now entering the summer period on a very firm footing, and is well positioned to continue this phase of growth into the second half of the year.”   www.eraa.org/stobart-air
