Air Charter Service (ACS) has stopped over 200 designer dresses being more than fashionably late by flying them from Milan to Paris for the Paris Fashion Week.
The dresses were flown for a major design label before a change in the order meant an additional 72 pairs of shoes, 40 pairs of trousers, and 11 passengers also had to be transported.
ACS group chief executive officer, Justin Bowman says: “It quickly became apparent that the high-value garments were too delicate to be transported in a cargo aircraft. So the request was handed over to our passenger division, in order to find an aircraft in which the garments could be hung up in the cabin.”
“However, at this point the requirement changed, as the customer added 72 pairs of shoes, 40 pairs of trousers, over 200 more dresses and 11 accompanying passengers.”
“As time was of the essence, the ACS team were up until 2 o’clock in the morning making all the arrangements – booking four aircraft, both cargo and passenger, from Pisa and Milan to fly into Paris in time for the show.”
