Bombardier and TAG Aviation Europe announced today that TAG Aviation Europe, a world leader in private and business aviation services, is the first to offer the long range Global 5000 aircraft, outfitted with Bombardier’s standout Premier cabin, for charter to European customers. The Premier interior’s striking aesthetics and ergonomic innovations bring a new level of refinement to the cabin experience, blending contemporary design, sumptuous materials and flawless craftsmanship with exceptional comfort, spaciousness and productivity.
“The Global 5000 business jet featuring the Premier cabin represents a new level of refinement, while delivering the industry’s smoothest ride. We are delighted that TAG Aviation Europe is able to offer this next level of style and performance to their customers in Europe,” said Emmanuel Bornand, Regional Vice President of Sales of Western Europe, Bombardier Business Aircraft.
The Global 5000 aircraft will be based in Paris and represents the ninth addition to TAG Aviation Europe’s managed fleet of business jets since the charter operator was awarded the Air Operators Certificate (AOC) from Transport Malta last year. Further additions to the rapidly expanding fleet are expected this year. In addition to the recently awarded Malta AOC, TAG Aviation also hold an AOC in Switzerland, the UK and Bahrein.
“As leaders in the provision of aircraft management and charter services, we are extremely pleased to be the first to make this prestigious, high-performance Global 5000 business jet available to our customers in Europe,” said Florent Sériès, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, TAG Aviation Europe.
The highly sophisticated and contemporary Premier interior was inspired by the Red Dot Award winning luxurious Global 7500 business jet and was introduced as on Global 5000 and Global 6000 aircraft models last year. The refinement of the business jet’s interior is matched equally by the impressive performance of the Global 5000 aircraft. An advanced wing design optimizes speed, range and control, to deliver maximum comfort and a remarkably smooth and comfortable ride.
The Global 5000 aircraft, the most spacious 3-zone cabin in its class, can fly 5,200 NM (9,630 km) non-stop* at a speed of M0.85 and access some of the world’s most challenging airfields and business hubs—including London City Airport. The impressive Global 5000 aircraft can connect Geneva to Miami and London to Seoul non-stop.
