History

The airline was established and started operations in 1987. It was formed by Andy Janes and his wife Hilary as Janes Aviation at Southendmarker airport. The company was renamed Emerald in 1992, in recognition of the large amount of business across the Irish Seamarker and established its base in Liverpool. In October 2002, Emerald bought Exetermarker based Streamline Aviation. The airline was wholly owned by AS Janes and HJ Janes.

In June 2005, EuroManx successfully bought the passenger service of Emerald Airways, which was operating low cost services from Liverpool John Lennon Airportmarker to the Isle of Manmarker, using BAe ATPs. Following the takeover these services were then operated under the EuroManx name and booking system, but often the cabin crew employed and the planes used were those of Emerald Airways.

Following the suspension of Emerald's AOC and the company subsequently calling in administrators, one of the ATP's was impounded by the Isle of Man Governmentmarker at Ronaldsway Airportmarker.

Accidents and incidents

On 8 March 2006, an HS748 Series 2a registered G-BVOV overran the runway at Guernsey Airportmarker. There were no injuries. The cause of the accident was that the flight crew did not operate the propeller controls correctly, meaning that less drag was created than would have been had the controls been operated correctly.

AOC Suspension

However, the CAA specified that should its requirements (as aforementioned they were not specified) be met the airline's AOC would be reinstated. On 11 May 2006, Administrators were appointed. As a result of the fleet grounding the firm were unable to generate any money to run the business. The AOC was revoked at the request of Emerald Airways on 7 August 2006.
