BACA: Record Membership Recorded

BACA, the Air Charter Association has recorded all-time high member numbers. Now standing at 225 – the highest in BACA’s history- with applications and approvals continue to increase. 

The increase can partly be explained by the increasing recognition of BACA is a global voice for the air charter industry. And new members have an increasingly international profile. Prospective members must have been trading for at least two years, be proposed and seconded by current members and are then permitted to join subject to approval by the Council.

Speaking about the record number of members Chairman Richard Mumford said “This is great news as we start a busy year for BACA, it clearly demonstrates that companies want to be part of a network of brokers. The more members we have the more able we are to pursue our objectives of speaking up on behalf of brokers and promoting broker standards and best practices. I’m thrilled with the growth in member numbers, it is clear that the Association is known and trusted to stand up for Brokers‘ best interests. We try to carefully protect the quality of our members to ensure that they enhance the value in our Association, and so when we do accept new members we believe that they help make the Association and the market stronger.

To further enhance member benefits BACA has teamed up with London Biggin Hill Airport and Air Charter Expo to create ACE’17, a dedicated exhibition and conference for Charter Brokers and aircraft operators.
