Weston Aviation to Open Business Aviation Centre

Weston Aviation to Open Business Aviation Centre

Weston Aviation has signed a long-term contract to open a new Business Aviation Centre at Cork Airport. This will be Weston Aviation’s first venture outside the UK and also the first hangar service for executive aircraft at Cork Airport.

Already operating at four UK airports, Weston Aviation offers fixed base operations (FBO) and cargo handling as well as aircraft charter and support services. The opening of the Business Aviation Centre marks the company’s move to expand internationally and the new facility will be open for business in September. The company will offer its full range of services including FBO services, hangarage, charter sales and concierge services.

Nick Weston, Weston Aviation’s Managing Director, said the announcement was exciting for the company as they expand their business outside of the UK for the first time. Cork Airport was chosen as the first international base for a number of reasons, the key factor being the numerous global businesses based in the region as well as the growing local economy.

Clive Power, Head of Finance and Commercial at Cork Airport, agrees that it is a positive sign for the local economy, as well as being an endorsement of the first-class facilities at the airport.

Established in 1995 by Nick Weston, Weston Aviation has bases at Newquay Cornwall Airport, Durham Tees Valley Airport, Humberside International Airport and Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield. The company provides specialist cargo logistics, private jet and helicopter chartering, concierge and aviation support services.
