ACS posts 'steady growth'

October 18 - Air Charter Service (ACS) says that it has seen charter numbers rise year-on-year in the first half of its 2016 financial year.

ACS group ceo Justin Bowman said: "Numbers are up 9 percent compared with the same time last year at more than 5,800 contracts to the end of July."

He added: "This year so far we have not had any 'special events', such as the West Coast port strike last year, for which we were doing up to three Boeing 747 charters a day for three weeks.

"The largest project that we have undertaken in 2016 was the 48-leg Iron Maiden world tour between February and July using the B747 nicknamed 'Ed Force One', but that only counts as one charter contract."
