Air Charter Service is investing in its French operations with the opening of a new office in Aix-en-Provence. This follows a strong 2022 so far and a promising end to 2021 for its Paris operation, in which revenue increased by 91 per cent.
CEO Justin Bowman says: “Since opening our Paris office more than 13 years ago, it has grown into one of ACS's largest offices and has had some fantastic figures over the years. We have made some major changes over the past 12 months and have now got an infrastructure in place for more long-term growth; part of that plan is this second French operation in Aix-en-Provence.”
This south of France office will be headed up by the experienced Caroline Bourge, who joined ACS over eight years ago and bringing with here more than 20 years' experience in the industry at both charter brokerages and airlines. 
Bourge says: “I'm really excited to grow the team here in Aix, especially over the next 12 months. I believe that there is huge opportunity in this part of the country for our passenger departments, as we already have many existing clients in the region.”
