Finalist for Air Charter Association Charter Operators’ Broker of the Year Award

LunaJets is honoured to be a finalist for this year’s Charter Operators’ Broker of the Year award from the Air Charter Association; an award voted on exclusively by the operators with whom we partner for flight services.

Established in 1949, the Air Charter Association sets a high standard, advocating on behalf of its +300 members to benefit everyone who relies on private aviation around the globe. Members include air charter brokers, aircraft operators, airports and FBOs, consultants, and suppliers.

The ACA confirms compliance with best practices and ethical standards of conduct. The Association also offers training, career development, lobbying, and mediation to help the sector perform at its best.

Through its website, the ACA offers flyers guidance and advice on the safe and legitimate booking of charter flights, including a Members Directory.

Looking to the future of general aviation, the ACA supports sustainability and the development of new aircraft technologies, including electric aircraft and sustainable aircraft fuel for lower fuel burn and carbon emissions. ACA also supports eVTOL aircraft development for passenger transport and drone technology for freight transport.
