As far as Ireland airlines go, Aer Lingus (Irish for "air fleet") is currently the country's flag carrier. It was formed in 1936, which makes it the oldest air carrier in the country, and the second largest (although roughly 25% of its market share is owed by the leading rival Ryanair, matching the government-held share). Aer Lingus' head office is located in the capital Dublin, and it features various operating bases across Ireland as well as one in London Gatwick and another reaching as far as Washington Dulles. Aer Lingus now serves close to 10 million passengers on a yearly basis, in a mix of no-frills flights and full service transcontinental routes. As of 2011, Aer Lingus operated across 73 destinations. At this time, Aer Lingus fleet was comprised of 44 air vessels with average age just less than 6 years. The company relies exclusively on Airbus crafts, mostly the A320-200 as well as a few A321-200, A330-200, A330-300, with several A350-900 and A319-100 on the way.
