TAG Aviation announced the addition of a new Bombardier Global 5500 to its European charter operation, bringing its managed fleet to 80+ aircraft. Based at Farnborough Airport, it will be the UK’s first G5500 and only the third in the whole of Europe, offering clients best-in-class levels of technology, performance, luxury and comfort, and providing them with even more choice in private jet travel to destinations worldwide.
The G5500 in question (9H-MAS) is configured to carry twelve passengers and features six beds. It can also accommodate 10-12 standard suitcases. A maximum range of 4800-5500 nautical miles, a cruising speed of over 500 knots, and 11 hours without refuelling means that clients get to spend less time travelling and longer at their chosen destinations.
TAG’s recently nominated Chief Commercial Officer, Karl Mills, is thrilled with the introduction of the new G5500 as it is a perfect demonstration of TAG’s ‘family approach’ to business.
“The owners of 9H-MAS have been a long-term charter client of TAG and over that period, I’m pleased to say that we have become the client’s 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 are now busy talking to more and more clients about longer-haul holidays and additional business trips.”
