Avia Solutions Group moves headquarters to Dublin, Ireland
Aviation business conglomerate Avia Solutions Group has transferred its headquarters to Dublin, Ireland, making it the second largest Irish-registered aviation business behind Ryanair.
Jonas Janukenas, CEO, Avia Solutions Group said that moving the company’s headquarters to Ireland was driven by its plans for further expansion. Its corporate aviation firm KlasJet operates a fleet of 14 Bombardier and Boeing business jets, making around 1,200 charter flights a year. The firm recently purchased a newly refurbished Boeing 737-300 aircraft for the UK charter market.
“Ireland is known as the hub of aviation,” said Janukenas. “A large number of aviation companies are located here, hence, being closer to the aviation community we will be able to implement the group’s development plans faster and maintain market leadership.”
According to the CEO, investors from the US and Europe purchasing company shares on the Dublin Stock Exchange was another reason behind the relocation to Ireland.
The group also has offices in the US, Lithuania, United Arab Emirates, South Africa and Australia.
Avia Solutions Group is an aircraft leasing, maintenance and insurance services company with a fleet of around 165 aircraft. The group also provides pilot and crew training and ground handling.
Companies owned by the group also include air charter specialists Chapman Freeborn, FBO and MRO Biggin Hill Hangar Company.
