The Air Charter Association (ACA) has axed the annual Air Charter Expo (ACE), due to ongoing concerns around the coronavirus pandemic.The event, now in its fifth year, was set to take place on 15 September at London Biggin Hill airport in the UK.
Held in partnership with the airport and Business Air News magazine, ACE is targeted at air charter professionals including brokers, suppliers and operators.
“While we’re disappointed to postpone this year’s ACE, our partners, colleagues and friends are already gearing up for a truly exceptional event in 2021,” says ACA chairman, Kevin Ducksbury. The “expanded” show is scheduled for 14 September next year.
In 2019, the event was attended by 1,100 visitors and 70 exhibitors, alongside 20 aircraft on display. Manufacturers Bombardier, Dassault, Gulfstream, and Textron Aviation all had a presence.
Multiple aerospace events around the globe have now been cancelled as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and its devastating impact on the aviation industry.
