U.K.-based Air Charter Service has opened its sixth office in the United States in Atlanta. It’s the 24th office for the seller of jet cards and on-demand charter. More will be announced in the next few months, according to a press release received by Private Jet Card Comparisons.
Speaking on the announcement, ACS’s President of American operations, Richard Thompson, said, “We identified Atlanta as an important hub for both passenger and cargo flights a long time ago.” He continued, “Our Atlanta client base is considerable and has been built up over a number of years by our other U.S. offices, and now is the time to provide our customers here local representation.”
In addition to selling its capped rate Empyrean jet card and on-demand charters, Air Charter Service arranged cargo and specialty charters, including road shows and live entertainment tours. The company, founded in 1990, has over 440 employees. Annual sales are estimated to be around $700 million. Last year, the company said it arranged 23,000 charters. The Empyrean Card provides a capped rate, in the case of light jets, $5,700 per hour. Through its relationships with charter operators, ACS then tries to obtain a lower rate similar to dynamic pricing jet cards.
“With a GDP of almost $400 billion, the city of Atlanta’s economy is the 10th largest in the country and among the top 20 largest in the world. The city also boasts the nation’s third largest concentration of Fortune 500 companies, as well as hosting the global headquarters of corporations such as Coca-Cola, Delta Air Lines, and UPS. The city offers our office here the potential to become one of ACS’s top performers,” said Thompson.
