Air Charter Service has opened its sixth office in the US, in Atlanta, the company’s 24th worldwide office with more to open this year.
Joseph Chiantia will be in charge at the Atlanta office, having previously worked at the New York office.
Prior to joining the company, Chiantia worked for the US Coast Guard, including flying on search and rescue missions.
Speaking at the announcement, president of American operations Richard Thompson says: “We identified Atlanta as an important hub for both passenger and cargo flights a long time ago. Our Atlanta client base is considerable and has been built up over a number of years by our other US offices and now is the time to provide our customers here local representation.”
He adds: “With a GDP of almost $400 billion, the city of Atlanta’s economy is the tenth-largest in the country and among the top 20 largest in the world. The city also boasts the nation’s third largest concentration of Fortune 500 companies, as well as hosting the global headquarters of corporations such as Coca-Cola, Delta Air Lines and UPS. The city offers our office here the potential to become one of ACS’s top performers.”
