Stobart Air recruiting pilots for their new Embraer E195 wet lease operation

Stobart Air announced back in December that they will operate new flights through its existing franchise agreement with Flybe using two 118-seat Embraer E195 aircraft. The 12 new routes will operate from London Southend and begin in May. The new services mean Stobart Air will offer a total of 28 routes from Southend airport.

Commenting on the announcement back in December, Warwick Brady, Deputy Stobart Group CEO said “The announcement of new routes from London Southend Airport (LSA) today further builds on the growth platform we have created in Stobart Group’s Aviation division. LSA is perfectly placed to serve London’s growing travel market especially in the face of the other London airport capacity constraints.

“This is also part of the next stage of our strategy to build new passenger routes and further the development of our regional franchise with Flybe, and proves that our Aviation division has the capacity and ability to capitalise on the growing demand in the South East for a very efficient airport making it quick and easy for customers.”
