In June earlier this year, Aer Arann Island who hold the PSO to Inis Mor, Meain and Oirr from Connemara gave notice that they wpuld terminate service in Dec 2018 after a commercial dispute.
3 months ago it seemed like thiscwas just a negotiating tactic to get a bit more cash out of Dublin but 20 staff have now received letters warning things are not looking good

Does anyone think there will not be a new PSO operator ?
After the Galway / helicopter fiasco of a few years ago, is Aer Arann Islands the only potential bidder for a new PSO tender ? If not, who else has access to appropriate aircraft and crew in sufficient numbers and would be a competent candidate to fill the PSO air transport requirements ?
