24th February 2020 – Weston Aviation are anticipating an increase in visiting aircraft during The Cheltenham Festival Week. The annual event is the highlight of the Cheltenham racing calendar that runs from 10th to 13th March 2020 and culminates with Gold Cup, the most prestigious race on the final day of The Festival.

Weston Aviation is the preferred FBO service provider for Gloucestershire Airport and only 15 minutes from the racecourse.

Nicole O’Connor, Business Development Manager for Weston Aviation commented, “We opened the FBO facility with hangar and private ramp less than 3 months before The Festival in 2019. A year on, the services and facilities have been considerably improved and we have established a great network of clients and passengers so we are anticipating a growth on movements based on the bookings already confirmed, which are ahead of last year.”

Gloucestershire Airport imposes a slot allocation for all aircraft due to the high demand for handling and parking throughout the week, O’Connor and the team highly recommend early bookings to ensure slot allocation and extension requests can be secured.

Weston Aviation is the UK & Ireland’s second largest network of independent FBO facilities, operating from Gloucestershire, Manchester, Humberside, Cornwall Airport Newquay and Cork Airports. The company also has an expanding fuel reseller network and offers cargo and specialises in providing private jet and helicopter charters, making events like the Cheltenham Festival and all worldwide events the perfect occasion to use their services.
