Re: Irish airline Stobart Air has collapsed

Never heard of 'em, but they seem to be a sort of subsidiary of Air Lingus.

Anyways, I thought Stobarts was trucks not airplanes... and is this not old news anyway? 🤔

Re: Irish airline Stobart Air has collapsed

Stobarts own Southend airport. I seem to recall them winning the contract for Aer Lingus internal flights under their Stobart air subsidiary some years ago. Should have stuck to trucking.
