Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport and Communications

Proposed Sale of Aer Lingus: (Resumed) Aer Lingus and Stobart Air

5:00 pm

Mr. Sean Brogan:

I would like to clarify one point for Deputy Fitzmaurice. I talked about what I hoped would be potential expansion to develop in other areas of IAG but he should recall my earlier comments about the growth in the Aer Lingus regional model serving the regional UK airports into Dublin and Cork. We have experienced over 50% growth in the past four years. I expect that under the IAG-Aer Lingus combination there is a lot more opportunity on existing routes too. Where I have multiple services into UK regions I would certainly see more opportunity for that under an IAG-Aer Lingus combination.
