Nihao Shanghai, ACS opens second Chinese office


Air Charter Service has invested in Asian operations with the opening of an office in Shanghai, China on 1 March.

Amos Chan, a graduate in aviation and aeronautics from RMIT University in Australia will head up Shanghai operations.

Speaking at the opening of the office, APAC regional director Stephen Fernandez said that Shanghai was a “natural choice” for ACS’s second office in mainland China.

He says: “The city is the largest in the country, as well as the richest, and is a major business hub for many industries. It houses China’s main stock exchange and has the world’s largest port, so we believe that there is a large market for our passenger and cargo aircraft charter services here.”

Fernandez adds: “We have been doing business with clients from Shanghai and the surrounding region for many years and are looking forward to building closer relationships with them, as well as welcoming new customers on board.”

Speaking about putting Chan in charge, who joined ACS five years ago from Hong Kong Air Cargo, Fernandez says: “I am confident that Amos is the right man for the job and I’m looking forward to the progression of the new office under his leadership.”
