Robert Korn explained, “With its long history in aircraft leasing, Ireland has developed a deep pool of knowledge, expertise and supporting infrastructure which creates a highly favorable base for Apollo Aviation’s platform. Its political stability and geographic location means Ireland continues to attract new investment while driving value for the companies already located here, reaffirming its position as the leading aviation hub globally.” added Robert Korn, president, Apollo Aviation Group.
