Stobart Air also said it intended to recruit 10 new captains and 30 cabin crew to its staff, while also agreeing to lease two Embraer 190 jet aircraft under a three-year lease to Republic of Ireland-based Nordic Aviation Capital to service the new routes.

Graeme Buchanan, managing director of Stobart Air, said the agreement with BA CityFlyer allowed the firm to diversify the brands the company works with and secure “additional commercial relationships with airlines”.
