Aer Arann will operate three new routes this summer, which will bring its offering to thirty routes.

The new routes include : Cork to Jersey, Cork to Angers and Manchester to Angers in the Loire Valley, France.

The airline also recently said it would begin a Galway to Liverpool service on 6th April, and a Dublin to Inverness and service on 10th April.

============

Cork to Angers and Manchester to Angers. What market will this cater for, apart from those wanting to get close to where they make Armagnac and 2nd homers?

Hmmmm. . . . AFAIK they pulled out of the Dublin-Cork route when Ryanair started flying. Doubt if they'd even try and compete: I'd say they are just trying out new routes BEFORE Ryanair get there.

They still fly ORK DUB x5 daily - shortly going back up to x6 daily.

They scaled back the DUB - ORK route but its still doing ok. They are announcing 9 new routes so thats 4 more to go. The ATRs are limited in their range from DUB, I think they will need something with longer legs soon.

The ATR's still have plenty more distance in them....

At what point does the sector length become a factor then? May have range but being I presume, somewhat slower, must have an impact?

Air Tahiti are operating the ATR's on 3 1/2 hour sectors. I'm not suggesting that RE think of doing this, but up to two hours would be suitable for the ATR on marginal routes.

AFAI can see, Aer Arann are concentrating International operations from regional airports and serving Dublin with just domestic routes, the Isle of Man and now Inverness.

There was never talk of them pulling out, of DUB-ORK scaling back sure, but this even turned out to be a bad idea, it seems that FR didn't take much from the RE market at all which on ORK-DUB is mostly business anyway and RE is more suited to this then FR.
