TAG Aviation Europe has added two further aircraft to its fleet in the second quarter of this year. A factory new Gulfstream 650ER and a Bombardier Global Express will both be available for charter. The Gulfstream will be based between Switzerland and Turkey, while the Global Express will be based in Farnborough, UK.
These latest additions to the fleet make a total of six aircraft for this year so far, and TAG looks forward to welcoming more to the fleet further into 2023.
“We are delighted to welcome these aircraft into our fleet as they fit perfectly into what is a diverse and reliable portfolio. They will also be well received in today’s charter market as both demonstrate ultra long-range capability with modern new interiors,” says Karl Mills, CCO, TAG Aviation Europe.

Operating out of Europe and Asia, TAG has a heritage dating back to the 1960s. TAG Europe has gone back to its roots, concentrating on offering aircraft management and charter services.
