TAG Aviation has expanded its European operation with the addition of three new aircraft to its fleet. A Bombardier Global 6500 and a Gulfstream IV SP are now available for charter, while a Gulfstream G500 has been added to its managed fleet, one of the first in Europe.
The Global 6500, based in Paris le Bourget, offers a combination of range, speed, smoothness and space. Configured to carry 12 passengers and with a transatlantic range of more than 6,600 nm, its technologically advanced cabin and Nuage seating are expected to be popular with long distance travellers who value comfort. In addition, its HEPA air filtration system captures up to 99.99 per cent of allergens, bacteria and viruses.
The G500 is based in Geneva and joins several Gulfstreams under TAG management, while the G-IVSP, which has a range of 4,200 nm, can perform flights from Europe to the east coast of America with a full passenger load of 12-14 on board. Outfitted with high thrust engines and aerodynamic wings, the jet is built for effortless take-off and landing and can access short runways and high altitude airports.
CCO Florent Sériès says: “Due to COVID-19, the last few months have been incredibly challenging for everyone at TAG, as well as for our clients. Thanks to the response from our dedicated teams, our customers never lost faith in us. As the skies are starting to open up, they are now returning to TAG for their private air travel. It is therefore particularly satisfying to be able to offer them even greater choice with the addition of these two exceptional new charter aircraft. The addition of the G500 to our managed fleet is a testament to our expertise and competitiveness in this field as well. My message to all our valued clients is that when flying really takes off again, a very warm welcome awaits them.”
As a result of COVID-19, TAG Aviation says it has implemented some of the most rigorous health and safety regimes in the industry. Due to the ever-changing global situation and varying regulations, the company is constantly reviewing and improving its hygiene measures.
