Posted 1 May 2013 · Add Comment

Leading aircraft charter specialist, Air Charter Service, has seen a 12% increase in charters across its three departments – private jets, commercial airliners and cargo aircraft.

The company, which arranged more than 6,500 charter contracts in 2012, says that it has been a very bright start to 2013. 

Chairman, Chris Leach (pictured), commented: “We are especially pleased with the success of the executive jets department, which has increased charter numbers by an impressive 20% compared to last year’s first quarter. The commercial jets division is growing at a steady pace, too, and cargo remains strong, as always. We have already arranged almost 1,600 charters in the first three months of the year.

“Sales of our jet card – The Lindbergh Card – have really started to take off in this year’s first quarter, helping with the strong growth in private jet figures.”

Leach concluded: “There are currently no signs of this upturn abating. We managed to steadily grow during the recent tough economic years and now we can push on with fresh optimism.”

Air Charter Service arranges more than 6,500 charters a year and has 17 global offices on five continents contributing to revenue in excess of $420million.
