TAG Aviation Middle-East

In December 2010, TAG Aviation Middle East obtained an air operator's certificate (AOC) from the Kingdom of Bahrain and began its operations there, providing air charter and line maintenance. The kingdom's 'open skies' approach to civil air transportation and its gateway position to the Gulf region make it the ideal hub from which to meet the growing demand for private jet travel in the Middle East.

TAG Aviation Asia

In 2006, TAG Aviation expanded into the Asian market with the opening of a subsidiary based in Hong Kong. From there, we now provide aircraft management, charter and maintenance services throughout the Asia-Pacific region.

TAG Aviation Asia offers all the benefits of centralised aircraft operations support and local service in the Far East, along with the same bespoke solutions and high standards of personal attention enjoyed by the company's European clientele.

Charter Services

Charter Services

Call and Fly

Call & Fly is the ideal solution if you are an occasional flyer who wants to book on a trip-by-trip basis. This is a simple, flexible and transparent option and, unlike fractional ownership or jet cards, there are no long term commitments or restrictions.

TAG Aviation operates one of the largest and most diverse fleets of business jets and can provide truly global solutions, thanks to our extensive network of partners. As no two trips are alike, our Charter Services team will help you select the size and category of jet that are right for each journey, and then look after everything so that you can enjoy complete peace of mind.

For the occasional trip,
it's the simplest way to
book a jet.

TAG Account

Our TAG Account is tailored to meet the needs of business jet charter clients who have frequent and predictable travel needs.

To facilitate confirmation of your flights, a TAG Account requires a deposit, but unlike similar programmes, all deposits are refundable and there are no expiry dates. Because you are unique, your Charter Services Team will tailor an account based on your individual needs and requirements.

We pride ourselves on the personal relationships that we develop with our TAG Account clients. From the moment you contact our Charter Services Team until your trip is completed, they will control everything so that you can relax and enjoy the journey.

TAG Account

Frequent flying redefined.
 

TAG Lease

Our TAG Wet Lease provides numerous advantages when you need access to a business jet for an extended period of time.

For clients who do not want to take on the complexity and commitments of ownership, leasing a private jet might be an attractive proposition. You can lease a private jet for fixed periods, ranging from one month to a year.

A number of aircraft in our fleet are available on a wet lease basis, guaranteeing you a modern business jet whenever you need it. The Charter Services Team can be relied on to analyse your needs in detail and provide you with a solution tailored to your specific requirements.

Emissions Trading System

Emissions Trading System

EU ETS and TAG Aviation's new ETS service

The European Union's current Emissions Trading Schema (EU-ETS) has business aviation operators around the world confused about how to comply. Even major governments are criticising the law that Martina Becher, TAG Aviation's ETS Solutions Manager, calls a "nightmare" for aviation. Here she comments on the EU ETS, explaining why it's illogical, what's at stake, and how to make compliance easier. She also outlines TAG Aviation's new ETS service.

TAG Aviation is the exclusive HondaJet Authorised Dealer for Northern Europe.
UK, Scandinavia, Benelux and Switzerland (GVA & Vaud)

HondaJet's new HA 420 light jet pushes back the boundaries of business and personal aviation. Quite simply, it's the fastest, highest flying, quietest, most fuel efficient, and most spacious jet aircraft in its class.

Its impressive performance is achieved thanks to its all-composite fuselage, natural-laminar flow airfoil and nose design, and over-the-wing engine configuration - along with the sophistication and refinement of its HF120 turbofan engine.

Life onboard could hardly be more luxurious, with a spacious, elegantly appointed cabin, handcrafted club seating, and numerous productivity and convenience features.
