Aer Lingus Regional flew its five millionth passenger this week on a flight between Dublin and Glasgow.
Aer Lingus Regional, operated by Stobart Air, commenced its partnership in 2010 and since then has flown five million passengers over the course of some 110,000 flights.
Megan Brown, who was the official five millionth passenger, was greeted with fanfare when she arrived at Dublin Airport as the airline had arranged a surprise celebration featuring the Booka Brass Band at the boarding gate.
Aer Lingus Regional now operates 27 routes, increasing every year since its original 12 options. Stobart Air's head of revenue management Ronan Whitty said the airline is expecting a new phase of growth.
“Aer Lingus Regional is on course to fly 1.2 million passengers this year, and we continue to enjoy month on month growth in passenger numbers, thanks in part to our expanded summer services and new routes including Dublin Newquay and Dublin Doncaster - Sheffield," said Whitty.
