Charters grew by 14 per cent for ACS

AIRCRAFT charter specialist Air Charter Service [ACS] completed almost 7,500 charter contracts in its financial year 1 February 2013 to 31 January 2014.
That is a 14 per cent year-on-year improvement, enthuses new managing director Ruan Courtney.
“These figures are a great testament to our work ethic and professionalism as we saw a rise in almost every division across our 16 offices,” he adds.
ACS has experienced continuous year-on-year growth for several years, but this is one of the largest single jumps in its history.
“It means that, on average, we book a charter every 70 minutes and that, because most charter contracts consist of more than one flight sector, an ACS-chartered aircraft departs more than once an hour, every hour of every day,” says Courtney.
With lower industry yields, revenue has not increased by the same percentage – “proving that it was a tougher market than in previous years.”
On the positive side, ACS reckons it is gaining market share.
