Charter broker Air Charter Service has opened a new office in Gatwick in the UK as part of the firm’s growth plans. 

The new office will be headed up by Alex Sadler who has worked for ACS for more than a decade.

The company said that the move would help with recruitment, opening up the aviation sector around the southern UK airport.

The company is headquartered in the UK in Kingston, which is close to Heathrow and Farnborough airports and has access to central London.

ACS chief executive Justin Bowman said: “When planning for our next five years of growth, we have realised that we would be making life more difficult for ourselves if we were to limit ourselves to the pool of aviation talent to the west of London and simply recruiting and training new brokers.

 “Along with many clients, and our airline suppliers, there is a huge number of aviation professionals around the Gatwick area, so we have decided rather than them coming to us, we will go to them.”

He added: “Our training programme has brought through hundreds of talented professionals over the last 30 years and that will continue to be our main strategy, as that is at the core of our success.

“Along with this, we have also seen great success in bringing in experienced professionals in recent years. We have an entrepreneurial culture here and have a track record of backing new ideas and empowering those willing to bring a proposal forward, whether that is a new product, or even a new office.”

Sadler added: “I can’t wait to get started building a new team here at Gatwick. I will miss being based at the ACS HQ with our fantastic team there, but we will still be part of the ACS family and this office opens up a new world of possibilities to expand it even further.”
