From Av Week http://bit.ly/9ZUVVu - UK logistics company Stobart Group, famous locally for its road haulage unit, has signed a five year deal with Aer Arann to start operations at London Southend Airport that could help the Irish turboprop operator exit its court organized restructuring.
Possibly a great way for Stobart to enter the Irish market - Stobart’s introduction will also benefit the logistics firm. “The association with Aer Arann, which is a household name in Ireland, would further strengthen and develop Stobart’s position in the Irish market which has grown from no presence to a €40 million business in two years,” says the freight company.

It is somewhat ironic that Aer Arann, with its financial problems, seeks to serve Southend as a means by which to rid itself of its financial problems. Haha. Only teasing. Will be good to see what develops.
