CMAC expansion grows with Spanish deal

Accrington-headquartered ground transport and accommodation provider CMAC Group has acquired Spanish-based Aircinks Solutions as its European expansion continues.

The acquisition, for an undisclosed sum, follows the launch of CMAC’s operations in Greece last year. CMAC now serves more than 130 airports.

Operating for 10 years, Aircinks has built a solid foundation serving and supporting airlines across Spain, Portugal and Morocco, during flight disruption. 

Peter Slater, chief operating officer at CMAC, said: “The acquisition of Aircinks has given us a great platform to build our services across Spain and Portugal and, along with our Greece operation, is a significant step in the development of CMAC as a major player in airline disruption across Europe.

“Many businesses may be cautious about expanding in Europe, but we feel this is absolutely the right time to be investing in the Continent and providing our services to new and existing customers.”

The Aircinks operation will continue to be overseen by Jordi Llopis and Israel Moreno, who move across to the CMAC Group, bringing with them their vast experience in dealing with flight disruption across the region.

The acquisition of Aircinks is a significant step in the development of CMAC as a major player in airline disruption across Europe.

Jordi Llopis said: “CMAC provides new platforms and technologies which will enable us to deliver our services more efficiently and effectively to our customers.”

CMAC delivers a range of “time critical and emergency transport products” and moves more than a million passengers each year.

The company was established in 2007 and today employs more than 150 people across its North West offices.
