THE BEST ISLAND EXPERIENCE
Perched at the edge of Ireland’s western waters, glittering on the horizon of Galway Bay and close to the spectacular views of the Cliffs of Moher, the Arann Islands have a weathered history and rugged landscape which folds together ancient and modern in three green, stone walled jewels of land. Every year hundreds of visitors fly with us to experience the vibrancy of nature and culture that make these three islands a unique Irish destination. For over 30 years, Aer Arann Islands have served Inis Mór, Inis Meáin and Inis Óirr year round; ferrying Islanders and visitors to and from the mainland. With frequent daily flights at less than ten minutes from lift-off to touch-down, Aer Arann Islands is the logical choice for commuting locals, visitors making the most of a day trip, and especially for a fast hop to an island holiday. All flights depart and arrive to Connemara Regional Airport, reachable by a scenic drive- and featuring free parking facilities; or a convenient shuttle bus service from the city centre. In addition to our regular service, Aer Arann Islands also provide charter flights for freight, passengers, scenic flights and more.
Established in 1970, Aer Arann Islands has been serving the Aran Islands communities for over 50 years, bringing Islanders, tourists and cargo to and from all three Islands all year round. Flights operate daily with a frequency of up to 25 mainland departures per day during peak season and with a flight time of fewer than ten minutes. the airline provides a vital link for Islander and tourist alike. The airline also provides charter flights for freight and passengers to other destinations in Ireland and the UK.
The award of which we are most proud is the confidence of the Islands population and their continuing support after fifty years in their service. We also recognise the award of a Public Service Obligation contract with the Irish Government to maintain an excellent air service for the Aran Islands communities into the future.
