TAG Aviation has added a new Global 5500 to its European charter operation, bringing its managed fleet to more than 80 aircraft. Based at Farnborough airport, it will be the UK's first 5500 and only the third in Europe, offering clients best-in-class levels of technology, performance and comfort, and providing them with more choice in private jet travel to destinations worldwide.

The 5500 in question, 9H-MAS, is configured to carry 12 passengers and features six beds. It can also accommodate 10-12 standard suitcases. A maximum range of 4,800-5,500 nm, a cruising speed of over 500 kts and 11 hours without refuelling mean that clients get to spend less time travelling and longer at their chosen destinations.

Chief commercial officer Karl Mills says: “The owners of 9H-MAS have been long term charter clients of TAG and over that period I'm pleased to say that we have become the clients’ trusted aviation advisor. When they decided to transition to ownership, TAG’s substantial resources and trusted third party network ensured a smooth, efficient and stress-free purchase experience all the way down the line.

“The Bombardier Global 5500 really is in a class of its own and will no doubt be a welcome, and much sought after, entrant into the UK charter market, just in time for summer. Many countries have currently removed their COVID restrictions, so our sales division is now busy talking to more and more clients about longer haul holidays and additional business trips.”
