Aircraft charter broker Air Charter Service (ACS) has opened a new branch office in Chicago. For the company, it represents its 10th location in the Americas and its 27th worldwide, since its launch in 1990. The new office will be headed by Caitlin Uhlmann, who has been with ACS for nearly a decade, serving in its Los Angeles, London, and New York City locations.
“Chicago has been on our radar as a natural location for another U.S. ACS office for a number of years,” said Richard Thompson, president of the company’s Americas operation. He added that it is the third-largest city in the United States and home to many Fortune 500 companies. “We have been conducting business with clients from Chicago and the rest of Illinois for many years and are looking forward to building closer relationships with them, as well as welcoming new customers on board.”
ACS arranges more than 23,000 charter flights each year, with revenue of nearly $700 million.
