ACE draws 1,000 attendees to London Biggin Hill Airport

London – 11 September 2018: One thousand brokers, operators and aviation professionals visited London Biggin Hill Airport today for the most successful edition of Air Charter Expo (ACE18).

With more than 60 exhibitors and 20 aircraft on show, the event drew record attendance from the air charter industry, with everyone from junior brokers to senior management enjoying presentations on connectivity, broker training and a CEO Breakfast Briefing from BACA – The Air Charter Association.

Andy Patsalides, marketing manager, London Biggin Hill Airport says: “This is the third time we’ve hosted ACE at the airport and each year we’ve seen a significant increase in attendees. This demonstrates the value operators and brokers place in coming together at this annual event.

“Highlights of this year’s event included a series of superb training sessions, as well as seeing London Biggin Hill, the home of Formula 1 Management, hosting the PrivateFly F1 Challenge. It’s an exciting time to be part of this industry and we very much look forward to hosting the 2019 edition back here at Biggin.”
