TAG Aviation's UK and Geneva operations have received the Diamond Safety of Flight Award from the EBAA at a ceremony held at EBACE. Diamond status is the highest level presented by the association, and is given to operators who have conducted either 50 years or 100,000 hours of safe flying.

"Ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our customers is at the heart of what we do, alongside our diligent attention to security and safe operations, and this is embodied throughout the entire TAG culture," says president of aircraft manage-ment and charter services Graham Williamson. "We regularly review our safety processes in the UK and Geneva to ensure we are implementing best practice, and we encourage ongoing dialogue between our pilots, crews, operations staff and senior management teams."

EBAA COO Robert Baltus adds: "We aim to promote best practices in safety in business aviation across Europe, and see safety as the number one priority in our business and at the core of what we represent. We wish the team many more safe flight hours in the future."
