Weston Airport Increases Landing Fees

The original poster released by Weston to promote GA but this was only short lived.

In July 2017 Weston Airport announced that it was cutting landing fees for General Aviation aircraft from €20 to €10. However, following a visit over Christmas we can confirm that the landing fees have reverted back to €20 for light aircraft under 1 tonne and €40 for aircraft arriving from outside the state (including Northern Ireland!). The planned fly-in that was due to take place during September to promote General Aviation at Weston never went ahead.
