Reigate, UK – ACC Aviation has announced the appointment of Conor Sproat to the role of Vice President, Leasing.

The aviation service provider contracted more than 130,000 block hours in 2018 and 2019, including industry-first wet leases of an Airbus A380 and Airbus A350, and welcomes Conor to further bolster the business’s market-leading wet leasing capabilities.

Conor joins ACC following successful roles across commercial operations, airline sales and leasing, working with a range of airline partners, including regional operators, LCCs and flag carriers, to deliver bespoke fleet utilisation solutions, principally in the Asia Pacific and European markets.

“We are delighted to welcome Conor on board,” said Dave Williams, Director of Leasing, ACC Aviation. “The pandemic’s impact on our industry has been significant, and this year has been a challenging one, but ACC continues to provide operational and strategic support to our global airline and aviation partners.

“We remain confident in the industry’s ability to recover and Conor’s appointment stands in testament to that. His skills, knowledge and experience, together with those of our existing team, will be invaluable as aircraft operators look to refocus and rebuild to better meet the demands of a post-COVID market.”

“I am very happy to be joining such a well-respected team of aviation professionals at ACC Aviation,” said Sproat. “This year has been incredibly challenging for many, but, together with my colleagues at ACC, I am looking forward to working with existing and new airline and aviation partners to help them adapt and thrive in this “new normal” and capitalise on the opportunities that present themselves.”
