Worldwide Flight Services has acquired a 100% shareholding in its former WFS Ireland joint venture after buying the minority shareholding of its partners, Gerry Jackson and Brendan Byrne.

The transaction was completed at the end of March.

Gerry Jackson retired from the company at the end of 2017 but Brendan Byrne will continue in his role as President of WFS Ireland. The successful venture in Ireland, which covers cargo handling stations in Dublin, Cork and Shannon, has been operating for 13 years with WFS as the majority shareholder.
