Aer Lingus Airlines

Aer Lingus Teoranta began operating as a registered airline on 22 May, 1936. The airline name (Aer Lingus) means "Air Fleet," in a rough anglo-translation from the brogue Irish name Aer Loingeas. The name was first proposed by County, Cork (Ireland) surveyor, Richard F. O'Connor, an enthusiast and repressed aviator. An initial capitalization of 100,000.00 Pounds to acquire the first aircraft was authorized to begin the carrier by the Irish Government. Later in 1936, the airline added a DeHavilland, four engine bi-plane as it's second aircraft.

After the second World War, commercial service by the carrier resumed 9 November, 1945. The Airline experienced a great amount of growth from the post-war years. Trans-Atlantic service began 28 April, 1958 between Shannon, Ireland and New York. In late 1960, the Irish flagship carrier entered the jet-age with three Boeing 720's. The current airline owners are Ryanair (29.4%) ,the Irish Government (25.4%), and stockholders on the Dublin and New York Stock Exchanges.
