Every year we have a new Budget/Finance Act which introduces new tax law that we have to get on top off. So it means we are constantly learning and need to be up to date with changes as quickly as possible – that’s what our clients expect of us.

New Jobs with Weston Aviation Operation in Cork

Weston Aviation is to open a new business aviation centre in Cork. The new aviation centre will be located at Cork airport’s executive hangar and office facility. This is the company’s first venture outside of the UK. 

The centre, which will offer a full range of services including FBO services, hangarage, charter sales and concierge services, will be open for business in September.

Established in 1995 and already operating at four UK airports (Newquay Cornwall Airport, Durham Tees Valley Airport, Humberside International Airport and Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield), Weston Aviation offers fixed base operations (FBO) and cargo handling as well as aircraft charter and support services.

Weston Aviation’s managing director, Nick Weston said that the company will be recruiting over the coming months. “We will be looking to initially recruit a team locally,” he said. “These positions will be in sales, ground handling and administration and over the next two years we plan to expand the Irish team. 

Details of careers with Weston Aviation are available here.

“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.

“Many of the companies based here may be new to the private aircraft charter services that we provide so will not be fully aware of the benefits we can bring to a business such as flexibility and cost efficiency. “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 invest to develop our business”.

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, which includes one of the most modern terminal buildings in Europe.”
