TAG Aviation, headquartered in Switzerland, is increasing availability for private charters aboard its Boeing 757. Over the summer and for the next 12 months the operator, which leases the jet to TCS World Travel, is creating more charter opportunities for existing customers and prospects.
Availability will extend for six weeks during the summer from the start of July to mid August 2016, four weeks from 10 October to 3 November and three months from 22 November to 21 February 2017.
“I am delighted that we are now able to offer our beautiful aircraft to the charter market for extended periods,” says director of charter for Europe Andrew Hodgson. “Last year we experienced unprecedented demand for the B757, however we were unable to meet it due to prior commitments, denying many hundreds of people the chance to enjoy this product.”
The B757 usually has capacity to carry 233 passengers and was transformed by TAG Aviation to create a customised cabin interior with two different configurations: an 80 VIP seating configuration plus 12 economy seats for sumer charters and a 52 flat bed seating configuration plus nine economy seats for remaining charter periods.
Onboard amenities include mood lighting, hand-woven wool carpeting, leather seating, upgraded bathrooms, steam ovens, wine fridge and wireless IFE.
