TAG Aviation Boeing 757 makes rare visit to Farnborough
TAG Aviation’s luxury Boeing 757 made a rare visit during this year’s Farnborough International Airshow, with the distinctive high-gloss ‘black pearl’ colourscheme.
The bespoke B757 recently completed one eight day private charter and four pre-season private charters for several leading English, Scottish and European football teams. Increasingly sports clubs are using aircraft charters for international pre-season tours in order to maximise publicity in new markets in preparation for the new season.
John Tarmar, director of B757 Operations, TAG Aviation (UK) said: “The B757 has chartered premier football teams on one and two night stay-overs this summer to destinations including Astana, Gothenburg, Baku and Bremen. TAG Aviation is delighted that we are able to offer our beautiful aircraft to the charter market for these extended periods. This exclusively-equipped jet has received high-praise from these premier football teams for providing such an ‘amazing service’ and club managers are already hoping to secure more charter availability in the near future.”
The aircraft was converted by TAG Aviation to create a customised cabin interior with two different cabin configurations – an 80 ‘VIP’ seating configuration (plus 12 economy seats) and a 52 ‘Flatbed’ seating configuration (plus 9 economy seats).
Amenities include wireless IFE providing a wide selection of inflight entertainment, beautiful linens and the highest quality catering and beverages. A specially trained team of experienced crew travels with the aircraft, providing guests with highly personalised service during flights.
Charter availability for the aircraft continues with four weeks from 10 October to 3 November 2016 and three months from 22 November 2016 to 21 February 2017.
