Air Charter Service (ACS) has appointed Andrew Summers to the new role of regional director of the broker’s mainland European offices.

Summers has been with ACS for 18 years, starting in London before transferring to the Dubai office in 2014 to head up the firm’s Middle East and Africa region.

In his new role, he will be responsible for helping the heads of operations across Europe and all three divisions – cargo, private jets and group travel – to grow their respective businesses as well as looking into expansion into new markets.

ACS chairman Chris Leach said: “We believe that a dedicated focus on the continent is essential to our growth plans – a region that makes up 15% of the global economy.”

He added: “As a fluent Russian speaker Andrew will also continue to oversee growth in central Asia through our Kazakhstan office.

“Andrew has been with ACS for 18 years, starting in London before transferring to the Dubai office in 2014. It will be great to have him home to help bolster our senior management team.”

Summers said: “I have loved my time in the Middle East, but am thrilled to be returning to the UK headquarters and taking on the European charter market.

“We have very strong teams across all seven of our offices in mainland Europe, and I’m looking forward to working closely with all of them.”
