Weston hires O'Connor as commercial director
Nicole O'Connor will work alongside Weston Aviation management and operations teams to enable and facilitate the development of additional FBOs in Europe, and to widen the air cargo proposition in these areas.
Nicole O'Connor has two decades of experience in sales and business development.

UK FBO and ground support services company Weston Aviation has appointed Nicole O'Connor as commercial director.

O'Connor has 20 years' experience in the travel and tourism industry, joining the Weston Aviation team in 2019. With two decades of experience in sales and business development, she has been instrumental in the last year supporting the development of local awareness of Weston and its services at Gloucestershire airport, the company's latest FBO and now headquarters in the UK's Cotswolds. She will focus on driving forward the long-term growth of the organisation by leading on the awareness of using regional airports on an international scale with commercial activities, along with bringing her unique experience and knowledge in partnership building.

She will work alongside Weston Aviation management and operations teams already firmly rooted, with a strong presence across the UK and Ireland to enable and facilitate the development of additional FBOs in Europe and to also widen the air cargo proposition in these areas.

She says: “I am thrilled with the appointment to this role and excited about the prospects of driving forward the all important message on the usage of regional airports for air cargo and passengers across the UK and Europe with additional FBOs, creating strong partnerships and looking forward to the further expansion of private charters. I will continue to work behind the scenes, creating new opportunities and exploring projects in other parts of the business to develop and achieve a high degree of business resilience and growth for now and the future.

“Being new to the aviation industry, I have relished the opportunity to apply my experience from another industry sector, meeting extraordinary people along the way already, and I am delighted to be part of such a reputable company.”

Weston Aviation operates five FBO and ground handling facilities in the UK and Ireland at Cork airport, Humberside airport, Manchester airport, Gloucestershire airport and Cornwall airport Newquay. Formed in 1995, Weston also offers fuel sales, aircraft charter, sales and leasing.
