ACS invests in Canada as it expands its Toronto office

ACS invests in Canada as it expands its Toronto office

The Canadian office of Air Charter Service (ACS) has moved to new larger premises in Toronto to facilitate its ambitious growth plans in the country.

In the first half of the year, the office has posted growth of 36 per cent. In 2016, the number of charter contracts signed was up 25 per cent on 2015.

ACS Canada managing director, Gary Hopkins (pictured) says: “Since we opened here in 2010 the office has steadily grown in terms of staff, revenue and number of charters.

“After outstanding growth over the past 18 months, we feel that now is the time to move to larger offices to help us to expand further and hire more local talent to join our specialist team.

“Our new premises is more than twice the size of the old office, which should give us enough room for our ongoing expansion plans. This is a truly exciting time for ACS Canada as we look to build on recent successes.

“Last year saw a huge increase in terms of number of charter contracts, up 25 per cent compared to 2015. This year has started off even better – after the first half of the year we have seen growth of 36 per cent.

“These increases are on the back of our ongoing investment in the Canadian charter market, which is helping to accelerate our expansion strategy.”
