Irelandia Aviation is the world’s premier low cost airline developer, led by Declan Ryan, one of the founders of Ryanair.

We initiate, develop and deliver successful low cost carriers (LCCs) in partnership with airline management and investors.

We pioneered the LCC model in Europe and have developed LCCs in Asia, Australia, North America and Latin America.

Our approach is focused on driving value creation through early investment and high operational involvement.

Our success is based on:

  • Consistent commitment to and disciplined execution of the LCC model
  • Application of the model to various markets, reflecting local conditions
  • Experience gained from multiple projects
  • Active involvement
  • Building and developing strong partnerships
  • Leveraging our network (suppliers, people, contacts)

We are focused primarily on developing markets

  • Strong macro and industry fundamentals; superior growth potential
  • Current target regions include Latin America, Asia and Africa

We bring our own and third party funds to these type of development opportunities.
