Stobart Air will launch two new routes connecting Dublin and Belfast with Cardiff from the summer.
The business, which runs the Aer Lingus Regional routes, said the Belfast to Cardiff route would begin on June 28th, with four flights per week, and the Dublin to Cardiff route would begin on August 30th, with three flights per week.
The proposed routes are subject to a timetable, according to the airline, which offers certainty for airlines, airports, and customers.
Stobart Air has urged the Irish and British governments to implement a vaccination passport scheme that would enable fully vaccinated citizens to fly again.
Andy Jolly, managing director at Stobart Air, said, “The aviation industry needs a roadmap and a clear plan for when and how air travel can safely resume in line with vaccination rollout programmes.”
Instead of requiring passengers to undergo additional pre-departure PCR checks, the company requested cooperation on the acknowledgment of domestic negative Covid-19 tests.
“Stobart Air continues to call on the Irish Government to work with all industry stakeholders to restore confidence in aviation and facilitate the resumption of safe air travel in line with the vaccination rollout programme. Airlines need to be able to plan and resource their schedules in advance, so it is critical that the government can outline a roadmap for the resumption of international travel,” Mr Jolly added.
Stobart Air announced a sale to Ettyl of the Isle of Man last month.
