Andrew Summers, Managing Director of ACS Middle East, commented: “We have increased the staff numbers by almost 30% this year and now have a great team here – it is a good mix of experienced locals and expats from our other global offices, all pulling together in the same direction.
“The market in the region has changed with the huge scaling back of military operations into Iraq and Afghanistan over the past few years. We simply never relied on this area of the market, so our business has not been impacted in the same way as some other aviation companies based here.
“The launch of airchartermideast.ae, our revamped UAE website, has certainly increased enquiries since it went live earlier this year.
“We have already beaten our record year in terms of number of charters, with still more than one month left in our financial year [Jan 31st 2016]. Revenue is also currently up almost 15% year on year, so we are hoping to continue this until the end of the financial year.”
