Aer Aranns New Fleet

Post by Lambada Crazy » Sat Feb 25, 2006 10:12 pm

Aer Aranns new Fleet,
Today i saw EI-REH operating for aer arann and it looks like it has not yet been painted, looks the same as REI but REH, lol, and i also heard they are upgrading their fleet to EmbrarerRJ145

saw it in a newspaper article:


Aer Arann is expected to change from using non-pressurised 36-seater plans to 50-seater pressurised jet. This has led to 14 pilots being told they could apply for jobs on the new planes when they became available. However, they would not be given special treatment over non-staff.

IMPACT officials are seeking to ensure preferential new jobs treat-ment for existing or former Aer Arann workers
When a flight is proceeding incredibly well, something was forgotten.

I don't think theyre upgrading to the Embraer. It was announced that ?150m will be spent on fleet expansion, but that REA were in talks with both ATR and Bombardier.

What newspaper did you read this in? I reckon they might be saying the wrong thing :?

They're not going to get out of SXL/CFN in a jungle jet...

I think you should check what year this was from - Looks very like a report I saw years ago for the change from 36 seater Shorts 360 to 50 seater ATR42.

Looks like Aer Arann will be going ATR72-500 or Dash8-400

I think any talks with Bombardier will be limited - and as a means of putting pressure on ATR. It's the old "Dutch auction" routine - never let the vendor think he has you in his pocket.

If they get Dash 8-400s, I'd be extremely surprised; I think it will be ATR72s?

Will these aircraft replace all ATR42s?

There were 10 people on my DUB -> IOM flight on Monday. They may not have a pressing need for longer fuselages.

I found this on pprune - q400 have specs on their website that were updated (and I think fairly recently).

Takeoff field length for 500nm sector
(ISA, 70 Pax, IGW) 3,720 ft 1,134 m
Landing field length for 500nm sector
(ISA, 70 Pax, IGW) 3,380 ft 1,030 m

Those specs seemed exactly where Porter Airlines were going to be operating out of (CYTZ, 70 pax, 4000ft runway, 500nm radius) but it seems to me that looks workable for GWY/CFN and possibly SXL too... maybe an all Q400 fleet could work! Maybe a few 70 seaters for PSO airports and 78 seaters elsewhere.
