Aviation executive Ian Woodley is understood to be engaged in talks to buy Aer Lingus Regional operator Stobart Air.

Mr Woodley was previously involved in regional carrier BMI. He was an investor in the consortium that acquired the operator from Aer Lingus owner IAG in 2012 and served as chairman until 2014.

The Irish Independent understands that Andy Jolly, the managing director of Dublin-based Stobart Air, is also involved in the acquisition talks alongside Mr Woodley.
