Flybe and Air Charter Service sign Inclusive Tour agreement

Regional airline, Flybe, has teamed up with leading aircraft charter specialist, Air Charter Service (ACS), signing an exclusive agreement allowing ACS to sell Charter Series capacity to tour operators on Flybe's behalf, from the winter 2013 season.

ACS will be utilising Flybe’s modern fleet of Dash 8s, and Embraer 175 and 195s to serve thousands of passengers over the coming year for a variety of clients including sun, sea and cruise companies.

ACS Commercial Jets Director, Matt Purton, commented: “Being able to utilise one of the most modern fleets in service is good news for all involved and will greatly benefit both our client bases. We will be able to offer to the tour operator market in the UK and Europe a cost effective option for from regional airports to a variety of winter and summer hotspots, especially to destinations where larger aircraft simply are not economical.”

Purton continued: “The deal was a natural progression in our working relationship with Flybe as they value service quality as highly as we do. We see this combination of service and operating efficiency as the two factors that will grow the amount of flying undertaken in this sector by Flybe. Personally, I am delighted with the agreement as it gives us the chance to further our working relationship with Flybe.”

Stephen Hobday, Director of Sales at Flybe added: “We are delighted to be working with ACS and very much look forward to benefitting from their expertise, service levels and understanding of our business, all of which are critical to a successful relationship for both partners and customers alike. We look forward to growing our tour operator business in conjunction with our new partner.”
