The ACA Spring Lunch returns after three year break
The Air Charter Association Spring Lunch at Guildhall, London was attended by more than 450 guests who gathered to enjoy an afternoon of networking, business discussions and fine food in grand surroundings.
The ACA raised nearly £3,800 for charity fly2help at its Spring Lunch.

The Air Charter Association (The ACA) returned to one of its flagship events, The Air Charter Spring Lunch, at the end of March. High demand by members and guests meant the traditional Merchant Taylors' Hall venue was too small to accommodate all attendees so it was moved to Guildhall instead. This was a reflection of the association's significant membership growth of more than 25 per cent in the past three years.

Chairman Kevin Ducksbury says: “It was incredible to see so many of our members gather to join us for the lunch and to welcome many of our new members, who we have not yet had the chance to meet in person. The fact that the lunch was so well attended is testament to the popularity of the Air Charter Association's events, and we are planning on further expanding our event calendar for 2022.”

Future events include The ACA's Level 3 Broker Qualification training to be held later this month, followed immediately by a forum bringing together its broker and operator members, before heading into the association's traditional European Networking Reception at EBACE in Geneva, Switzerland in May.

The Air Charter Spring Lunch was sponsored by Air Charter Service (ACS), Titan Airways, Flight Consulting Group, XLR Executive Jet Centres, Get Heli, Cambridge City Airport and Bournemouth Airport Cargo.
