Air Charter Service has record breaking year

Posted 16 March 2016 · Add Comment

Air Charter Service (ACS) has announced that it signed over 10,000 charter contracts for the first time in the company's history.

“It is a testament to our global strategy and growth that twelve years ago we arranged less than 1,000 and now we are booking more than ten times that amount. We have added 18 offices in that time, but this figure just proves that we were right to do so, as the business was clearly out there and we have increased our market share year on year,” said Justin Bowman, CEO, ACS.
 
ACS arranged 10,237 charter contracts last year, an average of 28 signed each day.
 
“We broke our monthly record five times in the space of six months over the spring and summer last year, including two consecutive months of more than 1,000 charters,” added Bowman.
