TAG Aviation is to operate a bespoke Boeing 757-200ER for TCS Expeditions for a period of six years beginning January 2015. The aircraft will principally be used to operate on a defined number of trips, but additional ad hoc charters may also be considered.
The operator is currently refitting the aircraft with a dual configuration, allowing the choice of either 78 or 52-seat configuration for TCS Expeditions guests, including leather seating. The aircraft will travel with a dedicated team of experienced crew, including chefs and concierge, and will also be equipped with wifi and ku-band satellite communications.
“This innovative project will deliver a high quality product and offer customers an exclusive onboard experience,” says aircraft management and charter services president Graham Williamson. “Working closely with TCS Expeditions has enabled us to customise this aircraft to meet their specific needs.”
