ACASS Expands Global Footprint Through Sonas Stake

Business aviation support group ACASS is expanding its global footprint with the formation of ACASS Ireland. The expansion is made possible through the Montreal-based company’s ownership stake in Irish private aviation operator Sonas Aviation.

“ACASS Ireland is a major milestone for us in several ways,” said ACASS CEO Andre Khury. “First, it builds on our already strong physical presence in Europe. Second, it exponentially expands our charter capabilities. And, finally, it allows us to offer our clients very flexible management options in a post-Brexit world.”

Sonas’s EASA Type A air operator certificate provides ACASS efficient importation of private and corporate aircraft into the European Union, unrestricted access and free circulation for aircraft through Europe, and a simple tax environment, explained ACASS Ireland president Graham Williamson. “ACASS Ireland can deliver the comprehensive bespoke solutions and the same highly experienced team Sonas was known for with the peace of mind and resources of a global leader like ACASS.”

ACASS Ireland has offices at Shannon Airport in Ireland and Farnborough in the UK.
