Stobart Air to operate for BA Cityflyer
 
Stobart Air are to lease two E190s to operate for BA Cityflyer from LCY.

Stobart Air to Operate Routes From London City Under BA CityFlyer Brand

I wonder if these are in addition to the 4 E190s BA announced were joining the fleet or part of the four?

A new LCY route to Carlisle in the pipeline when it finally opens to commercial traffic? :cool:

Iím guessing weekend flights from SEN may materialise.

Having looked at the Stobart AIr website I realise it's not related to Eddie!

It is part of the Stobart Group, formerly Eddie now William?

I think it is related, I'm pretty sure it is part of the Stobart Group which itself was founded by dear old Eddie.

Stobart have been operating the EI Regional flights for a number of years so no surprise to see this really

Will they operate a specific set of routes or just be added to the overall pool of aircraft?

The link doesnít work. Have looked on the website that the article is from and canít see any mention of it.

Stobart Air are currently operating some Flybe routes but this is coming to an end on 31st March 2019

Was pleased with Stobart ATR legroom the one occasion we used it. Much better than CE, frankly!

Hope the 190 is as good.

The E-Jets operated by Stobart are fitted with 118 seats. I am guessing that the two aircraft that will be operating for BACF will have there cabins reconfigured to the same 98 seat configuration as BACF’s E90’s

Do the Stobart Air aircraft have names on them like the trucks?

The article states that the 2 aircraft are being leased for a three year period and that Stobart will be supplying the crew to operate the service. I am guessing that the aircraft will be operated by a team of crew from Stobart’s SEN base.
