Do you only offer full charters?

No, we can also arrange part-charters when full charters aren’t the best option. Additionally, via our in-house team we offer onboard couriers, customs clearance and trucking services to connect to and from the airport.

Will other cargo be onboard?

Our full charters are bespoke, so it’s very unlikely that there’ll be other cargo on board, but please make your broker aware if this is a specific requirement.

What does the price include?

As a minimum, our quoted price includes the aircraft, crew, fuel, ground handling and aircraft insurance. Full details of inclusions and exclusions can vary from charter to charter and will be made clear in your quotation.

Is it possible to move live animals on a charter?

Yes. We regularly fly animals on charters, from pets on a private jet to a herd of cattle on a dedicated cargo charter. Please see our animal transportation cargo page for more information.

What are royalty and non objection fees?

These are fees charged by either the civil aviation authority or a domestic airline in the course of securing traffic rights for a specific country. Your broker will let you know if your charter is flying to or from a country where these extra charges may be applicable.

How do I know the aircraft I charter is fully insured and airworthy?

Our in-house compliance team holds on file the third party insurance certificate and air operators certificate (AOC) of every airline we use for charters.

Additionally, our sales team uses a custom-built system that alerts us if an aircraft’s documents are missing or expired before we make an offer to a client.

Are cargo attendants permitted to travel onboard charters?

In general, yes; however this is always subject to the airline’s approval. Please let your broker know if you need an attendant to accompany your cargo, so they can check with the airline or find an alternative charter option that facilitates your needs.

Can you help with trucking / customs?

ACS has two dedicated trucking teams located in Germany and the United States, who can assist with arranging ground transportation on either end of your charter.

We aren’t a customs broker, but we can introduce our clients to reliable agents around the world for assistance with the customs process.

Is there a limit on what you can fly?

Each charter request is considered on an individual basis and our brokers work as consultants to find a tailored solution for every project. If your cargo can’t be loaded onto a single aircraft, we can source multiple aircraft to get the job done. We can also help with heavy and outsize cargo.

What is the minimum weight?

There are no minimum weight requirements when booking a charter, as our solutions are tailored for your specific cargo.

Are charter flights trackable?

Yes. ACS has two 24-hour operations teams located in the United Kingdom and the United States, who can track the aircraft’s movements in real-time and send you regular updates.
