Hi there,

Can anyone please explain how European PSO (Public Sector Obligation) routes work - what characteristics of any given city pair make it a PSO route...???

Well in Ireland, Our PSO's are given to airports in regions of the country that would not otherwise be able to sustain an air service to the capital city.

In the case of Ireland, All PSO's serve Dublin. Terms include a morning arrival into dublin and an evening departure back to the region. This means in some cases that aircraft are based in the regional airports overnight to ensure an early morning departure.

In Ireland the PSO routes are:

DUB - DERRY-----------------LOGANAIR
DUB - DONEGAL--------------AER ARANN
DUB - SLIGO-----------------AER ARANN
DUB - KNOCK-----------------AER ARANN
DUB - GALWAY---------------AER ARANN
DUB - KERRY------------------AER ARANN

There are various PSO routes in Scotland, linking remote islands (and Campbletown on a remote part of the mainland) to key cities and towns. They would not be commercially viable and are socially neccesary as otherwise passengers would have very long road and/or sea journeys. And the weather can often mean some ferry links are suspended for a few days where the plane can get through

Thanks AerArran & Humberside - that's what I assumed it meant. Unfortunately though we don't seem to have them Down Under, worse luck! And if we do, we need more of them!
