Aviation company Avia to create 50 jobs in Dublin

Aviation company Avia Solutions Group has moved its headquarters to Dublin.

The firm said it anticipates having up to 50 specialists from various fields working at the office which is located at Central Park in Leopardstown.

Avia provides aircraft leasing, crew, maintenance, and insurance.

It has a fleet of 173 aircraft and provides aviation services such as passenger and cargo aircraft wet leasing, MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul), ground handling, recruitment services, and pilot and crew training to airlines including Ryanair, Turkish Airlines, Norwegian and Lufthansa.

The company said it has now become the second largest Irish-registered aviation business after Ryanair.

The Avia Solutions Group carries around six million passengers annually, operates across all continents and has a workforce of more than 11,000 staff located in more than 100 offices worldwide.

“Moving the company’s controlling headquarters to Ireland is a strategically important step for us in terms of our further development plans,” said Jonas Janukenas, CEO of Avia Solutions Group.

“Ireland is known as a global aviation hub. A large number of aviation companies are located here, hence, being closer to the aviation community we will be able to implement the group’s development plans faster and maintain market leadership,” Mr Janukenas said.
