“Today’s announcement is an exciting one for Weston Aviation as we expand our business outside of the UK for the first time.”
Nick Weston, managing director of Weston Aviation said: “Today’s announcement is an exciting one for Weston Aviation as we expand our business outside of the UK for the first time. We chose Cork Airport as our first international base for a number of reasons; key was the number of global businesses based in the region as well as the growing local economy. We believe that there is real scope to significantly develop our client base in Ireland from Cork and to provide world class executive handling facilities at the airport as well as hangarage for aircraft up to super-midsize types. We are looking forward to welcoming our existing and new customers to our new Business Aviation Centre at Cork.”
“We were also drawn to Cork Airport because of the size and structure of the airport as it is similar to that of our other airport partners, where we continuously reinvest to develop our business and have seen year on year growth and development,” added Weston.
Weston also announced that the company will be recruiting over the coming months. “We will be looking to initially recruit a team locally. These positions will be in sales, ground handling and administration and over the next two years we plan to expand the Irish team. It’s a very exciting time for Weston Aviation and we’re looking forward to growing our business at Cork Airport,” said Weston.
“We are delighted to welcome a company of the high calibre of Weston Aviation here at the airport.”
Welcoming Weston Aviation, Clive Power, head of Finance and Commercial at Cork Airport said: “We are delighted to welcome a company of the high calibre of Weston Aviation here at the airport. It is a positive sign for the local economy that a company such as Weston Aviation sees the potential in the region. It is also an endorsement of our first-class facilities at the airport.”
