Hibernian Airlines (HG, Dublin Int'l) is to station two CRJ1000s in Maastricht, The Netherlands, as part of a new commercial agreement with air charter broker, Europair, aimed at boosting its charter sales in Europe.

Part of the Air Nostrum (YW, Valencia Manises) group, Hibernian Airlines was set up in Ireland in April 2017 and operates on an ACMI and charter basis across Europe and North Africa. It holds an Irish Aviation Authority issued Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC).

The deal represents an ambitious step by Hibernian to expand its activity to new markets in Europe. “Both companies are confident that the development of this special flights business is foreseeable in the new market context, offering a very flexible product with customisable service,” the companies said in a statement. Europair said the deal was an extension of the joint work it had done with Air Nostrum over the past 11 years.

According to the ch-aviation fleets advanced module, Hibernian has three CRJ1000s which it leases through Fintech Aviation Services from owner Hamburger EmissionsHaus.
