Air Mayo was created after the fall of Swiss International Air Lines.But near the same period in which Swiss fell down,Eire International Airways also fell down due to rising debt.Then the two CEO's decided to create a company called Air Mayo ltd..Jack O Sullivan (head of Eire International) took the role of COO of the company and CEO of Air Mayo Cargo.While Mickey Flanagan (Head of Swiss) took the CEO of both Air Mayo,and the company Air Mayo ltd.
Air Mayo started operations on the 5th of August 2010.The airline started out with 2 Antonov 148's flying from Castlebar to Stornway,Isle of Man and Torshavn in the Faroe Islands.It also operates from Shannon,Cork and Belfast in Northern Ireland.The next day they launched their first flights to Europe,flying to Nantes in France.And the same day the airline bought their first Yakolev 40.Bought to handle the increased traffic and demand.On the 7th of August the airline agreed to look into North America.The airline's AN-148's were able to do that.On the ninth the airline started flights to St.John's in Canada.But 5 days later they were forced to sell the St.John's slot because of increased traffic in Europe,the other two planes simply could not cope with the traffic.
The airline has a fleet of three aircraft:
|2 (1 On Order)||78 (Economy)||3,334KM||All Destinations||EI-EIF,EI-EIG|
