Aer Lingus Regional carried 37 per cent more passengers last month than in June 2013. They carried a total of 130,100 passengers in June which was the 12th consecutive month of passenger growth.
Passenger numbers increased 26 per cent for the first half of the year on 2013 and growth was particularly strong in the second quarter.
Flights to and from Dublin rose 45 per cent in June. Flights to and from London increased by 39 per cent and a large proportion of this can be attributed to people attending Wimbledon. Glastonbury also contributed to the increase in passenger numbers into and out of Bristol airport.
Stobart Air operates the Aer Lingush Regional service under licence from Aer Lingus and rebranded as Aer Arann last March. They currently operate 550 flights a week to Ireland, the UK and France across 27 routes.
