Air Charter Service opens new Chicago office

Air Charter Service Chicago team

Broker Air Charter Service (ACS) has opened a new office in Chicago as it continues its US expansion.

The office, which is the broker’s tenth in the US, will be headed up by Caitlin Uhlmann, who has worked at ACS for nine years at the company’s offices in Los Angeles, London and Manhattan offices.

Richard Thompson, ACS Americas’ president, said: “Chicago has been on our radar as a natural location for another US ACS office for a number of years. The city is the third largest in population in the US and has one of the highest GDPs in the world – generating $689bn last year.

“O’Hare Airport is the sixth busiest in the world and the city is home to many Fortune 500 companies, some of whom are household names. We believe that there is a large market for both our passenger and cargo aircraft charter services here.

“We have been conducting business with clients from Chicago and the rest of Illinois for many years and are looking forward to building closer relationships with them, as well as welcoming new customers on board.”

Thompson concluded: “Uhlmann has been instrumental in setting up our last few US offices and I am extremely confident that she is the right person for the job and I’m looking forward to the progression of the new office under her leadership.”
