International Leaders in Aviation

Stobart Air’s story begins nearly fifty years ago. In 1970, with a small fleet of BN-2 Islanders, James Coen and Ralph Langan began operating reliable, value-for-money flights for the one thousand inhabitants of Inishmore, a small island off Ireland’s wild and windswept west coast.

Today, Stobart Air is one of Europe’s leading franchise, ACMI and charter aviation specialists. Every week, we operate up to 940 flights across 43 routes in 11 European countries with our partners Aer Lingus and Flybe, including flights from Dublin, Cork, Shannon, Donegal and Kerry.


Stobart Air is committed to operational excellence. In 2017, we announced a three-year plan to invest €25 million in our service, including new aircraft and new personnel.

We have also partnered with the Atlantic Flight Training Academy at Cork Airport to provide the next generation of Stobart Air flight crew with the skills they need to operate our aircraft to the highest standard.

Stobart Air is future-focused. We believe strongly in our ability to compete internationally and provide best-in-class service to passengers flying with our franchise partners.

Stobart Air is part of the Stobart Group.
