Weston Aerodrome was originally founded in 1931 (licensed circa 1937) by Darby Kennedy, who, from 1946, operated a de Havilland Dragon and several Dragon Rapide aircraft commercially from the Weston flying field, operated under the name Weston Ltd. The charter flights frequently took the biplane airliners to airfields in the United Kingdom. The airport was upgraded from a grass runway in the 1980’s when a tarmac runway was laid.

Weston was also the base for the making of the film about the First World War The Blue Max which starred George Peppard in 1966.

Now, Dublin Weston Airport, under new ownership, is Ireland’s only Executive Airport. It is a General Aviation airport attracting commercial and economic opportunities within the aerospace sector in Ireland. Founded in 1931 as a grass strip aerodrome it has developed over the years to elevate its position in Ireland’s Aviation Sector.

Weston Airport lies between Celbridge and Lucan, just off Exit 5 on the M4. The Airport is located on approximately 250 acres of land to the West of Dublin City Centre. It incorporates about 9000m2 of operations buildings, an air traffic control tower, three large aircraft hangars and has over 40 based aircraft. Currently Dublin Weston Airport has 15 direct employees with another 100 indirect jobs arising from airport tenancies and related activities.

To date the Airport has increased both capability and infrastructure to become a major part of Ireland’s national air transport infrastructure. The Airport is now fully operational as a public licensed airport with full terminal facilities.

Our commitment is to provide the highest standard of service to our clients and we are endeavouring to achieve those high standards with the development of our new Weston Bar and Restaurant, this provides the perfect setting for a relaxing meal after a long flight.

Here at Weston we see a future where Executive Travel will go from strength to strength, and we look forward to developing Weston in order to make Ireland more accessible to the Business world, while also ensuring that General Aviation prospers.
