Ryanair launches rescue flights for stranded Stobart Air passengers

DUBLIN, IRELANDIrish budget specialist Ryanair has launched a rescue sale after Aer Lingus's regional operator Stobart Air was forced to cancel all flights following the collapse of the airline's acquirement agreement by an Isle of Man-based company.



Stobart Air announced that it was going into liquidation, leading to the cancellation of flights on 12 routes from Dublin and Belfast.

In response, Ryanair launched the sale, offering fares from €39.99 on routes from Dublin to Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Manchester.

A Ryanair spokesperson said: “Stobart Air customers whose flights have been canceled over the coming days can enjoy the lowest fares and most reliable service by switching to Ryanair and we’ve released rescue fares from €39.99 on routes from Dublin to Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Manchester to assist any customers stranded over the coming days by the collapse of Stobart Air.
