ACE'22 and on into the future
Didn't we have a lovely time the day we went to Biggin Hill? Delegates, exhibitors and organisers all agreed that the one-day networking event is now, more than ever, a must-attend, international show.
ACE brings you closer to the beating heart of global charter.

Widely recognised as the leading global event dedicated to the air charter industry, the air charter expo ACE’22 brought operators, brokers, aircraft owners and industry professionals together for a focused networking day. This year’s event saw record attendance, with numbers up 17 per cent on 2021; attendance included 70 AOC holders from 27 countries with more than 90 companies exhibiting. To put its success into context, it is worth sharing that between them, attendees' businesses own and operate 1,373 aircraft.

Given the late date change, due to the funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, organisers were particularly delighted with these figures.

Additional improvements had been made for this year’s show. A new floor plan and booth style were very well received and changes to car park and shuttle arrangements proved very successful.

To date the show has grown its exhibitor numbers by 25 per cent year on year, but the essential one-day informal formula will stay the same.

Next year’s ACE’23 will take place at London Biggin Hill airport on Tuesday, 12 September 2023 from 09.00 - 17.00. The floor plan is currently being released to this year’s exhibitors for priority booth choice. Some have been snapped up already, and while a portion of hangar space has been allocated to a major sponsor Dassault, there is already owner/operator aircraft commitment both inside and on the apron.

ACE is a partnership between The Air Charter Association, London Biggin Hill airport and Business Air News parent company Stansted News Limited; this strong partnership is the key to the show’s success
