The first commercial jet, under the new licence, arrived on the 13th January 2015 from Stuttgart in Germany. The executive jet, a Citation, had two crew and seven passengers on board. They intend to be in Galway for a short stay and visit Connemara. The airport has obtained a new aviation licence, and a fuel licence recently, from the IAA. The Irish Air Corps are carrying out an audit of the facility this week, and the Coastguard search and rescue Helicopter operations staff will also be visiting the facility this week to carry out their own audit. The airport is being operated under licence from Galway County Council and Galway City Council until May 2015 by Carnmore Aviation Ltd, a company owned by the Conneely Group in Ballinasloe. The Group also own Weston Airport and staff will be shared between the airports. “It is only a small step but great to have commercial aviation back at Galway Airport.” The Councils have selected the consultant who will be undertaking a feasibility study over the coming months.
