The French unit of UK-based global charter broker Air Charter Services saw a combined 91 percent upswing in private jet, cargo, and group charter business in the first half of the year, the company reported late last week.

ACS France CEO Alexandre Busila said the private jet division nearly tripled the amount of revenue from last year as clients chose larger aircraft and longer trips with the easing of pandemic restrictions. In all, private jet division revenue for the company’s Paris office climbed 94 percent from the first half of 2020, and 38 percent from the first half of 2019. Its group charter division also saw a 71 percent year-over-year revenue increase, partly attributed to sports travel.

In ACS France’s cargo division, flight volumes rose 78 percent during the period and are 20 percent higher than pre-pandemic levels. “After the initial spike in 2020 of shipping (personal protective equipment), we are now back to charters for automotive parts, project logistics, livestock, textiles, and even perishables,” Busila explained.
