"Committed To Providing Essential Connectivity"
The Irish Times quotes Stobart Air managing director Andy Jolly as saying, "While the impact of COVID-19 has resulted in an unprecedented reduction in passenger demand across the aviation industry globally, Stobart Air is committed to providing essential connectivity between Ireland, and the UK and Europe into the future, in line with government guidance.
"COVID-19 has instilled widespread uncertainty globally. Passengers can be assured that enhanced health and safety measures in line with European Aviation Safety Agency [EASA] and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control [ECDC] guidance are now in place to protect them, our staff, and our airline partners."
