About Aer Arann Airways
Previously, Aer Arann operated its services between Ireland and the UK, France and the Isle of Man under the Aer Lingus Regional Brand. Aer Arann was established in 1970 by James Coen and Ralph Langan to provide air service to 1,000 islanders off the west coast of Ireland.
Aer Arann was a regional airline based in Dublin, Ireland. Aer Arann operated scheduled services on behalf of Aer Lingus Regional. Aer Arann had three bases in Cork, Dublin, Shannon which operated under the Aer Lingus Regional brand. In March 2014, Aer Arann changed its name to Stobart Air. In 2010, Aer Arann and Aer Lingus announced the establishment of a franchise arrangement between the two airlines which saw Aer Arann operate a number of routes from Dublin, Cork and Shannon to the UK under the Aer Lingus Regional Brand.
In 2012, this arrangement was extended to Aer Arann operating all of its routes under the Aer Lingus Regional brand. In 2013, Aer Arann was acquired by Stobart Air and the name was changed to Stobart Air. Aer Arann operated a frequent flyer program to reward regular passengers. Aer Arann operated a Gold Circle Club to access exclusive benefits. Aer Arann's fleet consisted of ATR 42-300, ATR 72-201, ATR 72-500 and ATR-600.
Stobart Air is one of Europe’s leading franchise, ACMI and charter aviation specialists, servicing 32 regional routes with up to 860 weekly flights between the United Kingdom, Ireland and mainland Europe. We are an established partner of world-renowned international airline Aer Lingus, operating its busy Aer Lingus Regional service, and Flybe, as operator of flights from London Southend Airport and the Isle of Man. Stobart Air is fully compliant with the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA). IOSA is an internationally recognised safety audit programme for the assessment and evaluation of airlines’ operational management and systems control. Supported by new aircraft, expert personnel, industry accolades and consistently strong performance along all our routes, Stobart Air is on course to become one of Europe’s top regional airlines. We expect to carry 1.80 million passengers in 2016.
Stobart Air has a franchise agreement under the Aer Lingus Regional brand and Stobart Air now operates under the Flybe brand with two separate arrangements: Since June 2014, the partnership has developed a franchise network from London Southend Airport, linking the newest London gateway with Caen and Rennes in France, and Gronigen in The Netherlands. More recently, from October 2015, the partnership has grown to include a wet leased arrangement for Flybe’s key services to and from the Isle of Man. These flights provide vital links for the Island residents to health services in Liverpool, and Flybe’s wider network through its hub in Manchester. Together, these operations carry over 350,000 passengers annually. As well as retaining 2 x ATR 72-500 & 2 x ATR 42-300 aircraft, Stobart Air have invested in excess of €200 million to support fleet modernisation and product enhancement. 13 brand new ATR 72-600 series aircraft have been purchased since the beginning of 2013. These aircraft have an exceptional turnaround, making them ideally suited to the heavy demand for our regional services.
