Justin Bowman, group CEO, ACS, noted that while full cargo charter numbers suffered in the UK, European business was stable and there was significant growth in Asia and Australia.
Bowman continued, “Growth was mainly fuelled by private jet business though, which was up almost 20 percent year-on-year.
We saw particularly strong growth in Europe and North America.
Despite the deterioration in general of the Russian market, the numbers across our three CIS offices were up on last year.
The addition of our three latest offices, in Geneva, Miami and Sydney, has also increased numbers as they are starting to establish themselves as profitable operations.”
