ACC Americas Appoints VP Commercial Sales
Post Written by: Jamie Harris
ACC Aviation is delighted to welcome Mike Jennings to our Americas team as Vice President, Commercial Sales, based out of Miami, FL.
After establishing our North American subsidiary at the end of 2018, our regional office has seen substantial growth despite the challenges faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mike has been brought on board to further accelerate our development in this region and across the Americas.
Mike joins ACC following successful roles as Director of Charter Operations for Eastern Air Lines and, most recently, Chapman Freeborn. Throughout his career, he has managed charter programs for high-profile clients, including meetings and incentives, professional and collegiate sports, the marine industry, travel management and government agencies.
“Our team has been continually busy throughout the year,” said Jamie Harris, President – Americas, ACC Aviation. “Aircraft charter flights are now often operating in challenging environments and we are working around the clock to support time-sensitive projects.
“Mike shares our commitment to delivering well-executed service to our clients and airline partners, and will play an integral part in growing ACC Aviation’s footprint in both North and South America.”
“I am very excited for the opportunity to join such an experienced and client-focused group of professionals at ACC Aviation,” said Jennings.
“This is a team that I believe in and, combined with the very best supplier relations I have seen in the industry, I am looking forward to providing a transparent, honest and unmatched level of service to our clients.”
2018 and 2019 were record years for ACC Aviation, contracting over 130,000 block hours of flying, including industry-first wet leases of an Airbus A380 and Airbus A350.
And, despite the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic, we have continued to help our international client-base with essential travel needs, including repatriation missions, marine crew rotations, critical PPE cargo flights and sports team charters, all while providing operational and strategic support to global airline partners.

From luxury beach holidays in the Mediterranean to stylish city breaks, it’s shaping up to be the year of the vacation. Hybrid working and video calls may be here to stay, but jet-setters are ready to switch off, say goodbye to their home offices, and take to the skies again.
The last two years have been a time of unprecedented change and challenge for the travel industry – but confidence appears to be returning, and momentum is building as we look ahead to the rest of 2022 and into next year.
After two years of lockdowns and travel restrictions, 2022 is a bumper year for women’s sport. The world’s appetite for televised women’s sports soared during the pandemic – and the interest shows no signs of disappearing now that fans can travel and stadiums are full again.
With travel restrictions, social distancing, and limited face to face meetings taking place, the pandemic has directly impacted the meetings and incentives industry. However, recent weeks have seen an upturn in requests, showing positive signs that the industry is recovering.
With a series of lockdowns resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, the automotive industry plunged in the first quarter of 2020. Despite the huge shortage of semiconductors chips, worldwide car sales grew in 2021. As the industry shows signs of recovery, we explore how air charter can support the industry.
The first few weeks in 2022 are expected to be busy for the international team and player travel. “We have been working hard this month on private air travel, bringing players and their families into the UK”, says Mitch Broadstock, the ACC Aviation Senior Business Development Manager.
