Ireland as an Aviation Hub International

For the last 50 years, Ireland has been at the centre of the aviation industry, attracting the world’s top industry players. Over 60% of the world’s leased aircraft are managed from Ireland, and 14 of the world’s top 15 lessors are based here.

Ireland’s competitive corporate tax regime, network of double tax treaties, highly educated workforce and sophisticated regulatory framework have all contributed to the established aviation ecosystem in Ireland, with a high concentration of industry-specific expertise. Ireland also has a mature and established investment funds industry and professional advisory services community to support investors and investment objectives in this asset class.

Our Aviation and International Asset Finance team has worked on a large number of award-winning financing and capital market transactions. We can assist on all aspects of setting up a new business in Ireland including registering your company, organising employment visas for staff, real estate advice and assistance, and introductions and access to service providers such as corporate services, payroll, accountants and auditors.
