Hogben appointment “brings gravitas” to BACA Council


Glenn Hogben, operations director at ACC Aviation, has joined the Air Charter Association’s council.

His appointment increases brokers’ representation on the BACA Council, and “brings influence and gravitas” to it.

Hogben (pictured) has been at ACC Aviation for 13 years, and a member of BACA since 2008. He described his appointment to the BACA Council as “a great honour” and added: “I firmly believe that BACA, the charter industry association, has an increasingly important role to play as the industry continues to grow and develop, ensuring that the high professional standards are maintained across the board.

“I look forward to working with the other council members to further build and promote the advantages of membership, already recognised by so many, to more regional and commercial airlines across Europe.”

A BACA spokesman said: “Glenn’s broad experience and expertise in aircraft charter and leasing will increase the representation of brokers on the BACA Council. With ACC Aviation being one of the leading international brokers, his appointment brings influence and gravitas to the Council.”

And BACA chairman Richard Mumford added that Hogben’s appointment “further strengthens” the Association. “I hope this will mean that we can increase and enhance the levels of service we deliver for our members, and I look forward to many valuable contributions from Glenn in his new role on the Council.”

BACA is the world’s largest air charter organisation, with more than 220 companies being members. Its members include air charter brokers, aircraft operators, airports, and handling agents. It aims to ensure that companies involved in aircraft chartering operate to high standards of integrity and professionalism.
