Aran Islands PSO

This decision is going to cause some serious fallout:
State air service contract withdrawn from Aer Arann Islands at likely loss of 40 jobs

Last year the Aer Arann Islands operation (using 3 Islanders) carried about 40,000 passengers to and from the Aran Islands, with multiple daily flights to/from/between the three islands. I'm hard pressed to see how a daily return flight in a 5-passenger Squirrel is going to give anything like the same level of service.
