Stobart Air operated regional flights for Aer Lingus

Aer Lingus was caught unawares by Stobart Air’s collapse last Friday as there had been a breakdown in communications at a senior level between the two carriers, the Irish Independent understands. 

Stobart Air, which was headed by managing director Andy Jolly, had operated the Aer Lingus Regional service on a franchise basis.

There has been a political storm caused by the collapse, with the Government in the firing line over its handling of Ireland’s aviation sector during the pandemic.
