Aer Arann appointed Garry Cullen as its new chief executive, ending a months-long search for a successor to the airline's founder and outgoing MD, Padraig O'Ceidigh. He will take up the post of executive chairman while outgoing chairman Paul D'Alton will become a nonexecutive director. Cullen was chief executive of Antigua-based LIAT. Separately, Aer Arann will launch four-times-weekly London Luton-Newquay service from July 3 aboard a 66-seat ATR 72. It already serves Newquay from Cork.
