Our Locations

Dublin office


Being headquartered in Dublin is central to the success of our business, since the bustling Irish capital is home to many of the world's most prominent aircraft lessors. The proximity to our clients has allowed us to nurture strong relationships with them and a deep understanding of the challenges they face in the aircraft leasing industry.

Cork office


Located in Skibbereen, County Cork, our finance and administration teams are found in beautiful South West Ireland. These two essential departments keep the entire Six West operation running smoothly. Furthermore, our Cork office has created much needed quality employment in rural Ireland and this is something that we are particularly proud of.

Shannon office


Shannon is the latest office for regional Six West expansion as we join more than 80 firms in Ireland’s largest aerospace and aviation cluster, where we're able to actively explore opportunities with local businesses. Having a fixed presence in Shannon is important because of how critical this place is to Irish aviation, and being here helps us to fulfil our company values as we're able to further create employment opportunities in Ireland.

Corporate Team

Each team member brings different talents to the table, but they all have two things in common - a genuine love for the aviation industry and the drive to exceed our clients' expectations.

Young Aviators

Six West in collaboration with the Atlantic Flight Training Academy (AFTA), jointly organised a student initiative competition in 2019, designed to create awareness of Ireland’s thriving aviation industry and to encourage students to consider a future career in aviation.
