Record quarter for Air Charter Service
Air Charter Service has recorded its busiest ever quarter for its cargo division, with 1,445 cargo charters in the period August to October. This, combined with its other divisions, resulted in the highest ever revenue for the company in one quarter – a total of GBP 321.1 million (USD 430 million).
Dan Morgan-Evans, group cargo director at ACS: “Manufacturers and retailers who have historically relied on shipping to move the bulk of their orders are now considering charters as the only solution to hit impending deadlines and, in particular, Christmas. The bulk of air cargo is traditionally carried in the belly of scheduled passenger airliners, but that network will not be up to its full capacity for some time yet, and now is the time to turn to charter.
