Air Charter Service’s Germany based onboard courier team has moved into its own independent office next to Frankfurt Airport, just three years after the company announced that it would revamp its OBC division, and two years ahead of schedule.
Oliver Weigelt, ACS’s Time Critical Manager, commented: “Our team here in Frankfurt has grown so quickly that we needed to move from the ACS charter office to a new premises here at the airport sooner than we originally intended. The new office gives us the space to continue expanding as our business grows on a monthly basis. Kelsterbach, due to its close proximity to the airport, is the ideal place to have our operation.
“Last year our contract numbers grew by more than 50% on the previous year to almost 1,700 jobs and we are continuing the strong growth so far in 2018. This new OBC dedicated office gives us the space to double the size of the team in the future.”
Justin Lancaster, ACS’s Group Commercial Director, added: “We’ve been investing heavily in our OBC offering and we’re very excited about the new office. This is a worldwide service and a 24-hour product – we now have more than 600 representatives globally who hold more than 40 different visas, meaning we can have someone on an aircraft within hours to almost anywhere in the world.”
