The Challenge Group has become a member of trade association The Air Charter Association (ACA).

Open to both passenger and cargo transport, The Air Charter Association has seen its number of cargo providers increase due to several factors, starting with the pandemic and the geopolitical situation.

At the same time, air cargo has become a predominant component of the charter business, while the demand for charter has grown over the past two years. The number of clients seeking such a solution has also increased, reinforcing Challenge Group’s decision to join the association, said the ACA.

Or Zak, vice president commercial of the Challenge Group, which includes two freighter airlines, cargo handling and logistics businesses, said: “The Air Charter Association, which was established in 1949, is one of the oldest and most respected air freight related associations globally. The Challenge Group is honoured to be accepted as a member by this prestige association, and we are looking forward to work alongside other members and partners in shaping the future of the Air Freight industry in general and that of the Global Charter in particular.”

Kevin Ducksbury, chairman of The ACA, stated: “We are delighted to welcome The Challenge Group to the Association as we develop our international growth and increase our representation for membership in the cargo sector.”
