TAG selects Monarch Engineering for Boeing 757 maintenance
TAG Aviation selects Monarch’s engineering division to a Boeing 757-200ER used a holiday operator.
TAG Aviation has contracted Monarch Aircraft Engineering Limited (MAEL) for full maintenance support of a Boeing 757-200ER, which will be used by TCS Expeditions for round-the-world holiday tours.
The aircraft was built in 1996 (msn 26330) and originally delivered to Transvia Airlines. It was then leased from International Lease Finance Corporation, with Cabot Aviation acting as TAG’s acquisition agent. The first revenue service is scheduled for January 2015.
MAEL will provide base and line maintenance, full CAMO and spares support. MAEL will fit-out the aircraft’s business class cabin at its new facility at Birmingham Airport, which will include the installation of new seats, galley, overhead storage and an on board Wi-Fi system.
