@irishairspec Sales of the #IrishAirSpectacular book and calendar have raised €23,000 for  @SVP_Ireland to date!. Huge thanks to everyone who bought a book and supported this wonderful cause.

@theaeronetwork Azores Airlines to launch Ponta Delgada – Bermuda route on seasonal basis in 2021. From 06JUN21 to 26SEP21, A321neo operates once weekly.

@TierneyOisin Volotea have ceased the operation of their final nine Boeing 717s. The airline took their initial delivery in Dec. 2011, and operated a total of nineteen. The type will be replaced by Airbus A319s.

@TripAdvisor Optimistic for the return of travel, travellers are busy rescheduling 2020 plans. In the Tripadvisor forums, Paris leads the way (so far) as the first destination travellers want to visit when they are able to again. 

@ThisIsDynamo Our portfolio company @MannaAero’s drone delivery service has been a boon to small & locally owned businesses. Founder Bobby Healy  says there is an opportunity here that is starting to manifest itself for small local vendors in suburban areas.
