Air Charter Services, Inc (ACS) is an aircraft leasing and brokerage company that specializes in providing reliable and quality air charter flights. Unlike other aircraft brokerage firms that merely arrange an aircraft with no further involvement, ACS goes much further.
ACS is uniquely qualified in the charter transportation of college football teams to their away games and bowl games. This means selecting the right aircraft size, coordinating with the football teams staff on times, bus/aircraft connections, security clearances and in-flight service. With multiple flights every football weekend, ACS has the aircraft resources on hand to solve any unforeseen problems.
ACS has taken a major role in transporting collegiate men's and women's basketball teams. In most cases ACS employs the highly reliable B737-400 aircraft to transport its teams, including aircraft configured in 68 seat all first class cabin with Wi-Fi capability. We also utilize large aircraft for conference tournament trips and 19 -50 seat regional jets for certain teams. ACS recognizes the unique demands of mid-week games and the need to operate on time and professionally
