Aviation service provider ACC Aviation has appointed Mike Jennings as VP of commercial sales.
The UK headquartered organisation, which established its North American subsidiary at the end of 2018, has seen substantial growth despite the challenges faced as a result of this year's pandemic, and has brought Jennings onboard to further accelerate its development in this region and across the Americas. He joins ACC following successful roles as director of charter operations for Eastern Air Lines and, most recently, Chapman Freeborn. Throughout his career, he has managed charter programmes for high-profile clients, including meetings and incentives, professional and collegiate sports, marine industry, travel management and government agencies.
“Our team has been continually busy throughout the year,” says Jamie Harris, president Americas, ACC Aviation. “Aircraft charter flights are now often operating in challenging environments, and we are working around the clock to support time-sensitive projects. Mike shares our commitment to delivering well-executed service to our clients and airline partners, and will play an integral part in growing ACC Aviation's footprint in both North and South America.”
“I am very excited for the opportunity to join such an experienced and client-focused group of professionals at ACC Aviation,” adds Jennings. “This is a team that I believe in and, combined with the very best supplier relations I have seen in the industry, I am looking forward to providing a transparent, honest and unmatched level of service to our clients.”
2018 and 2019 were record years for ACC Aviation, contracting over 130,000 block hours of flying, including industry-first wet leases of an Airbus A380 and Airbus A350.
And, despite the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic, the aviation service provider has continued to help its international client-base with essential travel needs, including repatriation missions, marine crew rotations, critical PPE cargo flights and sports team charters, all while providing operational and strategic support to global airline partners.
