The investment will take place over the next five years and will advance ACS' charter booking technologies and online presence. It comes on the back of a record year in which the company recorded turnover of around £300m for the year ending 31 January.Chris Leach, chairman and founder of ACS, said: "We have always invested in technology, but now the need is greater than ever. Developments such as our popular jet prices app, which launched two years ago and allows customers to get instant charter quotations, enhance our customers’ ACS experience, as we move more online than in previous years. We are currently revamping and redeveloping all of our websites... and developing real-time customer information portals and [we] are planning on investing in other disruptive technology over the next few years.
"It is an exciting time at ACS following an outstanding 2014, which showed strong growth and around £300 million in sales. We have always been a highly ambitious company and the board is hoping that this investment will keep us leading the technology race in the charter marketplace."
