Aer Arann Islands is an Irish airline.

Aer Arann Islands was established in 1970 by James Coen and Ralph Langan to provide an island-hopping air service between Galway and the Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland. Operations, using a single Britten-Norman Islander, began in August 1970. This service has since been moved to the less distant Connemara Airport. Pádraig Ó Céidigh acquired the airline in 1994. As of 2010 it still used Islander aircraft.

Aer Arann Islands is now completely commercially separate from its former parent Aer Arann (now Stobart Air). It has no links to the Stobart Group and is still run by Chairman Pádraig Ó Céidigh. It will continue to be run under the brand name Aer Arann Islands for the foreseeable future, and not be re-branded as Stobart Air, unlike the main Aer Arann airline.
