Aircraft charter specialist, Air Charter Service says its Australian operations is growing robustly since opening in 2016, tripling in size over that period.
That growth saw the company move into larger office space to accommodate the larger team, it says as it celebrates its fifth year Down Under.
Paul Crook, ACS managing director in Australia, who had previously worked for ACS in Dubai, opened the Australian office with just three staff.
Despite 2020 being a turbulent one for aviation, ACS says the Sydney team has had a strong year across all of its three divisions: Private jets, commercial jets and cargo. The team was also accepted onto the government Department of Defence panel last year.
“The last year has been a very strange one for our industry and the world as a whole,” Crook says. “We have been fortunate enough to have experienced a good year business-wise though. All three of our divisions grew, but cargo especially, as we stepped in to help fill the gap caused by the reduction in scheduled services.”
Stephen Fernandez, ACS’s regional director – APAC, also comments: “We decided to invest in the Australasia market five years ago and it has certainly paid off. We are positive about the further growth of the market and we will be investing more into our Australian operations this year. We look forward to the next five years of ACS in Australia and hope that the world will have gone back to normal by then.”
