Air Charter Service expands with San Francisco office

Aircraft charter specialist Air Charter Service has opened a new office in San Francisco, California, its second in the state and sixth in the USA in total.

Richard Thompson, president of Air Charter Service Americas, said, “We opened our LA office seven years ago and it has steadily risen into one of our fastest growing offices, and so far this year we are 30% up on 2017’s numbers.

“Some of our best clients are located in the San Francisco Bay Area and we wanted to move here to better service them. We also felt that it was the next logical step in our US expansion plan, following on from opening our new Manhattan office earlier this year.

“The new operation will be headed up by Loretta Mendelovits, who joined us more than four years ago and has shown great leadership skills, which will be put to good use in her new role as she takes on the San Francisco market.

“California has the world’s fifth largest economy and is larger in area than Germany and many other European countries. Almost 10% of all private jet traffic in the USA departs from California, so the demand is certainly enough to have two offices in the state.”
