“Excellent service – polite, courteous and helpful throughout. The flight was arranged at short notice and the timings were perfect to enable us to travel to take part in our game. The flights were very smooth and the efficient manner in which we were transported to and from our destination contributed greatly to the enjoyment and success of the trip. Thank you for all your assistance.”
“This was such a stressful project being the first charter that I have had to do for a client. They were also a new client as well, so we were trying to wow them with our service. Without ACC’s help, none of this would have happened, they were invaluable and went over and above what they needed to do. Their patience was amazing with what were often last minute alterations. Thanks so much guys, you definitely will be recommended for future projects. It was a pleasure dealing with you.”
