TAG adds Scottish flavour as global family jets in for surprise reunion celebrations
TAG Farnborough hosted a surprise 100th birthday reunion for Rosina Rice from Essex, UK, after online private jet charter marketplace PrivateFly facilitated the flight arrangements.

TAG Farnborough hosted a surprise 100th birthday reunion for Rosina Rice from Essex, UK, after online private jet charter marketplace PrivateFly facilitated the flight arrangements.

Plans included the onward journey of 51 members of her family to Inverness on a privately chartered Eastern Airways Saab 2000 for a week of celebrations at Skibo Castle.

Mrs Rice's sons emigrated to America and South Africa where their families have lived since. PrivateFly's Adam Twidell says: "The TAG staff ensured every detail for their arrival in the UK was perfect. The Scottish theme was carefully planned and no detail was left to chance, from a Scottish bagpiper who greeted the arriving guests to the tartan wheelchair that was on hand if needed for the elderly guests."

TAG's Claire Gaines pointed out: "When Mrs Rice was born in 1908, the world's first aerodrome, Port-Aviation, was being opened 12 miles outside of Paris. TAG offers a very different high tech environment today."
