On Twitter Stobart are reported to be increasing the capacity on KIR-DUB using can ATR72 for the winter. Where’s the -42 off to? Stobart should also have an ATR released from the Isle of Man, BE are taking over the routes themselves.
RE has retired the two ancient ATR 42-300s EI-CBK and EI-EHH and replaced them with one new ATR 42-600 (EI-GEV) which exclusively serves the DUB-CFN and DUB-IOM routes. The article is a bit misleading in that DUB-KIR was already upgauged to the ATR 72-600 at the beginning of the season but the increase in capacity they mention for W18 will be comparing the increase to W17.
I was on the 42 to Manchester two weeks ago on EI3322 as well, so they may be subbing in and out.
