ACS RAMPS UP INVESTMENT IN BRAZIL AS IT CONTINUES RECORD YEAR

28 January 2019


Leading aircraft charter specialist, Air Charter Service, is continuing its commitment to investing in South America, with the expansion of its Brazilian operation.

Ana Benavente, ACS Brazil’s CEO, commented: “The new premises is almost twice the size of our last place and gives us enough space for the foreseeable future, with plenty of room for the next stage in our expansion plan – we have almost doubled the size of our team over the past 12 months and are looking to push on with further investment in 2019.

“Brazil is a market on the rise. We have the eighth largest economy in the world, with several companies in the country featuring in the top 250 of Forbes’ “The World’s Largest Public Companies” list and almost 50 billionaires based here.

“We have had a record year at ACS Brazil – we surpassed 2017’s figures with more than two months of our financial year remaining. As the only global company of our type in South America, we had an especially busy period in June and July as we chartered for four of the five South American nations taking part in the FIFA World Cup.

“Probably the most pleasing aspect is that the growth is spread across all three of our departments: private jets, commercial airliners and cargo aircraft.”
