The U.K. private jet charter broker says capped rate jet cards now account for 40% membership sales
Air Charter Service, which sells jet card programs with both U.S. and European service areas, reports its capped rate jet cards now account for 40% of jet card sales. The capped rate product was launched in August 2018.
In a press release, Tim Rees, ACS’s jet card manager, commented, “It’s easy to see the appeal of the Capped Rate Jet Card scheme. It allows clients to budget for the year by giving them a fixed rate, capped price, but allows them to benefit from market prices at the time of booking which generally saves the customer money.”
The U.K.-based charter and jet card broker said its Americas offices have surpassed the $250 million mark in sales
Air Charter Service said it has expanded its U.S.
headquarters to more than 20,000 square feet, double its previous space.
Richard Thompson, its president for the Americas, said in a
press release, “Last year ACS Americas arranged just shy of 6,000 charter
contracts across the nine offices and saw revenue of more than $250 million.”

The company sells on-demand charter and jet cards
Jet card and on-demand broker Air Charter Service said that in the first half of its financial year the company saw an increase in private jet bookings from its UK office of 8%. This is compared to industry-wide WingX statistics showing that private jet flights into and out of the UK were down by 5.4% over the same six months.
In a press release, Andy Christie, Air Charter Service’s Global Director of Private Jets, said, “We had a very good first half of the year, considering the market is in decline, with more than 1,300 private jet charter flights arranged just from our London HQ over the six month period. The increase of 8% is even more impressive when you take into consideration WingX’s figures for the UK and when compared to the worldwide industry as a whole, which has grown by just 2%.”
