The private jet broker brought in supplies on an empty leg positioning flight
Air Charter Service’s
Miami office recently filled up an empty passenger aircraft, on its way to
perform an evacuation flight, with key supplies that the company had purchased
to help those in need following Hurricane Dorian.
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%.”
The broker of jet cards and on-demand charter is expanding its Russian presence
Air Charter Service, which has 25 offices worldwide, and sells on-demand charter and jet cards in the U.S. and Europe, said it has expanded its presence in Russia, moving into new offices in Moscow with nearly double the space as its previous presence.
Air Charter Service has appointed the industry veteran Richard Carrick as a non-executive director to the company’s group board. The U.K.-based charter broker offers capped rate jet cards in both the U.S. and Europe as well as custom jet cards tailored to an individual’s specific flying needs.
Several jet card programs offer fixed rates and guaranteed availability in both the U.S. and Europe

European jet cards for the U.S.-based flier
While there are more providers that offer Europe-only
solutions, if you are flying privately here in the U.S. sometimes it’s nice to
have a one-size fits all option. To find those companies that can help you on
both sides of the Atlantic, we scoured the Private Jet Card Comparisons
database of over 50 providers and more than 300 programs.
