Air Charter Service expands its Swiss presence

Feb 03, 2021

Leading aircraft charter specialist, Air Charter Service, has made further investment in growing its Swiss operations and, in preparation for it, has more than tripled its office space. This will facilitate the future growth of the company in Switzerland after a strong year.

It has come a long way since year one, when the office booked 27 flights, generating a turnover of CHF540,000/£450,000. Despite the pandemic in 2020, ACS Geneva had its record year, booking over 500 flights and recording a turnover of more than CHF36 million/£30 million.

Alvaro Recas Pardo, CEO of ACS Switzerland, comments: “This is an exciting time for ACS Switzerland – we have added several new faces to our team, and celebrated our fifth anniversary last year!

“We initially opened the office in 2015, with only two desks – now the new office can accommodate up to 23 team members. We will continue expanding the team in 2021, which is another reason for the move to this bigger office.

“The project to move here has taken almost a year to complete, in order for it to be as seamless as possible. The new office is more than double the floor space of our previous premises.”

Alvaro Recas Pardo concluded: “Our business in Switzerland has grown every year since it opened and this new office space allows us to continue that trend for the foreseeable future.”
