Air Charter Service adds onboard courier team in Asia

Air Charter Service (ACS) has expanded its onboard courier (OBC) operations through the creation of a new team in Asia in addition to its Frankfurt setup.
The new team will be led by Hugo Liu and will be based in Air Charter Service’s office in Hong Kong.
ACS time critical manager Oliver Weigelt said: “This new operation for our OBC service is the first in what I hope will be further regional developments across the globe in the next few years
"Asia is a booming market and this local presence will really boost our business in the area. It allows us to have OBC expertise in another of ACS’s offices which, in turn, helps our main team here in Frankfurt immensely."

ACS relaunched its OBC team just over a year ago and Weigelt said the operation has had "an outstanding 2015" and this year had been even better.
"We are on course to arrange more than 1,000 OBC jobs in 2016 which, from an almost standing start last Spring, is a phenomenal achievement, and we’re very excited about the opportunities that this expansion in Asia brings,” he said.
Earlier today, Chapman Freeborn also announced an expansion to its onboard courier team.
