Air Service Contract to the Aran Islands

Minister of State for Gaeltacht Affairs, Joe McHugh T.D., has announced today (25 September 2015) that he has cancelled the tender process for the award of an air service contract for the Aran Islands. It is intended to advise the European Commission of the position as soon as possible and to commence a fresh tender process for the air service.  The Minister indicated that the Department will enter discussions with the existing service provider for the provision of an interim service with a view to enabling the re-tender to take place, while ensuring that there is no disruption in service.
