Leading aircraft charter specialist, Air Charter Service, has expanded its OBC offering in Asia by developing its specialist team and network of couriers. This expansion will be led by Hugo Liu who will be based in the company’s Hong Kong office.
A little over a year ago Air Charter Service relaunched its On Board Courier division with significant investment, pledging further funding over the coming years. After an impressively busy first year, the company has seen the need to have OBC specialists in Asia, to compliment the team at their headquarters in Europe.
Oliver Weigelt, ACS’s Time Critical Manager, said of the development: “This new operation for our OBC service is the first in what I hope will be further regional developments across the globe in the next few years. Asia is a booming market and this local presence will really boost our business in the area. It allows us to have OBC expertise in another of ACS’s offices which, in turn, helps our main team here in Frankfurt immensely.
“We had an outstanding 2015 for On Board Couriers and this year is, so far, proving to be an even better one. We are on course to arrange more than 1,000 OBC jobs in 2016 which, from an almost standing start last Spring, is a phenomenal achievement, and we’re very excited about the opportunities that this expansion in Asia brings.”
