The U.K.-based broker has fixed rate programs in North America and Europe and also offers customized jet card options

Air Charter Service is expanding its footprint in Asia with a new office in Shanghai.  It marks its second in the country and 24th globally. Last year, the broker of private jet charters, jet cards and cargo flights generated nearly $700 million in revenues.

Speaking about the new office, Stephen Fernandez, ACS’s APAC Regional Director, said, “Shanghai was a natural choice for our second office in mainland China. The city is the largest in the country, as well as the richest, and is a major business hub for many industries. It houses China’s main stock exchange and has the world’s largest port, so we believe that there is a large market for our passenger and cargo aircraft charter services here.”

He added, “We have been doing business with clients from Shanghai and the surrounding region for many years and are looking forward to building closer relationships with them, as well as welcoming new customers on board.”

Veteran Amos Chan has been named to head the operation. A graduate in Aviation and Aeronautics from RMIT University in Australia, Amos joined ACS five years ago, having previously worked for Hong Kong Air Cargo. The office opened officially opened at the beginning of the month.
