A national association with an international reach, IBGAA is committed to playing a pivotal role in shaping the long-term growth, success and sustainability of the business and general aviation industry, both in Ireland and across the globe.

Its collective ability to do so is strengthened by its position as one of 15 member-associations making up the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC), which represents the interests of business aviation around the world. Furthermore, IBGAA’s membership in the Council of European Business Aviation Associations (CEBAA) enables its members to guide industry projects that have an impact at national and European levels.

As an outward-looking, all-Ireland association, IBGAA is committed to promoting the island of Ireland as a centre of excellence for business and general aviation, aircraft leasing, charters, and finance. It is therefore the board’s mission to build upon the solid foundations already in place, to continuously facilitate engagement, participation and collaboration across the industry. This, in turn, will further establish Ireland as not only an appealing destination to visit, but also a hub for business and trade in Europe.
