The ACA relocates awards with international travel in mind
The Copthorne Hotel Effingham provides the opportunity for wider attendance to cater for The Air Charter Association's fast-growing membership, and space to accommodate any continuing restrictions.
The Air Charter Excellence Awards are a key date in the business aviation calendar. This picture shows the 2019 gathering.

The Air Charter Association (The ACA) has announced the date and new format for its annual Air Charter Excellence Awards.

Taking place on 21 October 2021, the Air Charter Excellence Awards will be held in the Millennium Conference Centre at the Copthorne Hotel Effingham, near London Gatwick airport, one of the largest venues in the UK's south east. The new venue provides the opportunity for wider attendance to cater for the ACA's fast-growing membership and space to accommodate any continuing restrictions.

Chair Kevin Ducksbury says: “After the disruption to events and moving the awards online in 2020, we are delighted to announce the return of this live awards ceremony. We are making some key changes to the historical format, in order to ensure the event can run successfully and literally reunite the industry.

“We are also taking advantage of the hotel-based location by switching the event to an evening gala dinner format. Guests will be able to stay at the Copthorne Effingham or another nearby hotel. With the 10-minute transfer time from London Gatwick Airport, this location will be very convenient for our international members.”

The ACA will be sharing more details regarding the awards categories and voting in the coming weeks.
