Aer Lingus Regional’s Dublin Kerry route will have 30pc more seat capacity and will continue to be serviced by a larger aircraft (ATR72). Over 51,000 passengers flew the route in 2017.

Stobart Air, earlier this year, announced the renewal of its Dublin-Kerry and Dublin-Donegal Public Service Obligation (PSO) routes under the Aer Lingus Regional brand. The contracts will run until the 31 January 2022.

Graeme Buchanan, Managing Director of Stobart Air said: “Our increased route capacity will not only benefit our passengers traveling out of Ireland but will also be hugely beneficial to passengers traveling to the US via Dublin as they can save time by availing of the Dublin preclearance service.”
