ABOUT ACS

ACS - Air Charter Service Inc.

Air Charter Service was founded in a London basement in 1990 by Chris Leach. Over a quarter of a century, the company has grown to become one of the world’s few truly global providers of private jet, commercial airliner and cargo aircraft charters.

Mr Leach believed that there was space for another aircraft charter company, but one that focused solely on exceptional service and building long lasting relationships with its customers. He believed that if you went that extra mile for them then they would always come back and with that blueprint he would build a business, thus Air Charter Service (ACS) was born.

About Air Charter Service Inc.

After struggling to pay the mortgage whilst managing his fledgling business, Chris offered his spare room to Kingston University to house a student. Little did he know that that student, Justin Bowman, would turn out to be an aviation enthusiast whom, after spending his placement year working with Chris in the basement, would end up the CEO of ACS today.

Growth and then more growth

Soon they outgrew the basement and required more staff, so a small office above a shop in Kingston Surrey became the new ACS Headquarters. After two further office moves, and now with over 300 staff worldwide, ACS is a truly global company, but that small, family mentality is still at the heart of our operations.

Whether a client is entrusting us to fly just them, other passengers or important cargo, we promise a level of personal service that goes beyond their highest expectations, while ensuring complete peace of mind throughout the entire experience.

Decades later, with a network of offices spanning North America, South America, Europe, Africa, CIS, Middle East and Asia, ACS is the proud supplier to thousands of clients worldwide, in fact we arrange close to 9,000 charters every year. Despite these impressive numbers, the company still relies upon its core value of providing only the best personal service to every client.

With 18 offices across five continents, including US locations in New York, Houston and Los Angeles, ACS delivers a local, personal service knowledge on a global scale.

No matter if you require a helicopter, turboprop, private jet, airliner or cargo aircraft, Air Charter Service will find you the perfect charter solution.
