The Spanish office of leading aircraft charter specialist, Air Charter Service, has celebrated its tenth anniversary by revealing their half year results for the six months ending 31st July 2018, which show revenue up by 37% and charter numbers rising by 49%.
Managing Director James Fitzgerald comments: “2018 has been a very exciting year for us, as we celebrate our tenth year of operation. We have grown our experienced sales team and are currently looking to move to bigger and better premises.
“2018 is proving to be an incredibly busy year so far. It has been especially pleasing to see an increase in larger cargo programmes, including daily flights on an Antonov AN-12 for five weeks and one that involved six Boeing B747s in less than two weeks. The private jet division has also seen impressive growth, especially when it comes to heavy jet charters, and our commercial jets department was heavily involved throughout the World Cup.
“There was a moment recently where I realised that across the three divisions – private, commercial and cargo – we had eight aircraft in the air at the same time! It really hit home the amount of work and effort that our team invest in their job to keep our charters running smoothly, and I believe that this is the real reason behind our strong figures for the start of the year.
“We opened our Spanish office ten years ago in 2008, and we have grown in terms of charter numbers every year since. We are currently on course to break 1,000 charters for the first time by the end of this year.”
