The ACA brings specialists in for 2020
Creation of new working groups manned by specialists is just one of the ways in which The Air Charter Association is storming into 2020. Its aim is to self-regulate and to promote relationships within the industry.
Nick Weston explains the steps The Air Charter Association is taking to supercharge its presence within the air charter industry.

The Air Charter Association has set out an ambitious strategy for 2020, with the purpose of being recognised as the 'go to' source for the air charter industry. As part of the plan, the association has created a mission statement: “We aim to be the leaders in self-regulation and promoters of supply chain relationships for the air charter industry. We aspire to be the primary source of air charter industry information, to provide support and guidance to our members and external authorities and to hold first class networking events and trade gatherings.”

The strategy outlines detailed objectives for the short, medium and long term. In order to progress these aims and deliver on these projects effectively, the association has created a number of new working groups. To complement the association's rebrand last year, the council team will now be known as The Air Charter Association board and individuals will be board members, rather than council members. The new working groups will comprise members of the board with specialist knowledge and expertise in specific areas.

The association will continue to hold its two very successful Spring and Autumn lunch events, and exhibit at EBACE in Geneva, alongside its now firmly established networking reception at Mr Pickwick. A key event in the association's calendar for 2020 will once again be Air Charter Expo (ACE20), a conference and exhibition taking place at London Biggin Hill airport on 15 September.

Chairman Nick Weston explains: “These are very exciting times for the association, and I am confident that the creation of the working groups will help drive the association's plans forward during this year and into the future.”
