Weston Aviation, a UK and Ireland FBO and support services company, has delivered the G7 Summit in Cornwall. The summit, held at the Carbis Bay resort in Cornwall, operated all delegate flights into Cornwall Airport Newquay, which saw not only the main delegate aircraft but also in excess of 20 support freighters and reserve aircraft.

During the week, Weston handled and supported the main mission delegations, including Air Force One and Two, and processed in excess of 400 passengers and support teams through the FBO with crew accommodation and transportation, contributing to the overall success of the event. The company brought in support teams, GSE and vehicles from its other UK FBO locations to ensure that the extremely intensive and rapid flight programme was met.

CEO Nick Weston says: “The past week of the G7 Summit has been the result of many months of in-depth planning, meetings, communications and ground works to ensure that a successful event was delivered by all involved. For myself and all my team, this would be a once in a lifetime event in Cornwall and through total dedication, very long hours and professionalism, we made it happen. It was a pleasure to work alongside the entire US Embassy support teams, the various government departments, national carriers, police and airport ground staff.”
