South Aer Aviation Services Select Global FBO Consult

Established FBO South Aer Aviation Services have selected Global FBO Consult to assist in developing their Cork International Airport business. Managing Director Pat Forde remarked during the announcement at the Future of Business Aviation Conference “We currently handle in excess of 75% of the Business Aviation traffic at Cork International & are the airport’s only dedicated Business Aviation facility. We believe our position as a family run FBO gives us the edge & allows us to provide the highest level of personal service our clients can expect anywhere in the world. But no company grows while standing still. I feel the time is right for South Aer to look at upping our game, extending to our existing clients an even better experience & offering new services while identifying new revenue streams for our business. Engaging Global FBO Consult allows us to bring in a strategic partner with international experience, giving us a great insight into how the major FBO chains operate yet allowing South Aer to promote its family/personal service to our clients”. Cork International Airport is the natural gateway to Ireland’s entire South & Midlands region for destination traffic as well as sitting under the North Atlantic tracks for tech stop traffic. The airport has 24 hour capabilities, full fire cover, no slots, full customs and quick turnarounds at this Biz friendly airport.
