ACC Aviation's all-VIP Boeing B757-200 is ready to commence charter work, having been newly certified by the Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority and placed on the Air Operator's Certificate of Freedom II.

ACC Aviation is the aircraft's sales and marketing agent, providing direct access to this 62 seater for ad hoc and charter programmes. With demand expected to be high, the company has built a dedicated charter team who will work hand-in-hand with Minnesota-based Perigean Aviation, providing worldwide charter capacity.

The B757 has a 62 seat configuration which bridges the gap between private charter and scheduled services, providing a flexible transport solution for larger groups.

With the upcoming autumn season, including touring programmes, substantial MICE travel and the FIFA World Cup, the aircraft will provide much needed capacity for group travelling.

ACC CEO Phil Mathews says: “We are thrilled for Freedom II to have this unique aircraft on its AOC. With high demand for private jets and large commercial aircraft, there could not be a better time to bring this aircraft back to the market, and we are excited to see the first enquiries coming through.”
