IRELAND | Dublin | Dublin International Airport


A private FBO at Dublin Airport with two dedicated Jet A-1 fuel trucks and offering support for trips throughout Ireland

Sean Raftery, Managing Director; Mark Shiels, General Manager

Welcome to Dublin!

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Dublin Airport, where we want our excellent customer service and our first-rate facilities to leave a lasting impression.

Our philosophy is simple: to take the burden of operational requirements away from visiting crews and to ensure that all passengers experience a seamless turnaround.

While an aeroplane is being prepared, our VIP transfer vehicles are available to take passengers to our private facility, which includes two lounges, WiFi and flat-screen TVs, and a complimentary customer car park. Operationally, we have two Jet A-1 fuel trucks on request 24/7 to ensure the timely departure of clients who need to travel on short notice.

We look forward to seeing you on your next trip.
