Emerald Wins Donegal Route

Aer Lingus regional operator Emerald Airlines will take over the State-supported Dublin-Donegal air service from next month.

Scandinavian carrier Amapola Flyg has been flying the route under a stop-gap arrangement with the Government since July after previous operator, Stobart Air, collapsed in June.
The Department of Transport has awarded a three-year contract to Emerald Airlines after putting the route out to tender across the EU in August. Emerald, run by Conor McCarthy, will launch its Dublin-Donegal service from February 26th, the day after Amapola’s contract ends, ensuring there will be no break between the two.
The airline will fly a 72-seat ATR aircraft twice daily each way between the two airports. Emerald will fly the route under the Aer Lingus brand and flight numbers. Its schedule will allow passengers to connect with the larger carrier’s network.
Aer Lingus last year awarded its regional franchise to Emerald following several months of talks. That will launch on St Patrick’s Day, March 17th. Mr. McCarthy said the award of the contract would ensure continued links between the two destinations.
