TAG Farnborough Airport has announced a record increase in air traffic movements (ATM), reporting the highest ever growth in the history of TAG Farnborough Airport for the month of January with an increase of 17.9 per cent in January 2018.  This follows a year of significant growth with 2017 being the airport’s busiest year since 2007.

For the full year 2017, TAG Farnborough Airport saw a year-on-year increase in air traffic movements of 7.4 per cent and the record 17.9 per cent increase in January 2018 is a clear indication that this positive trend is set to continue.

“This improved performance is a tribute to the dedication of all our employees and represents a clear vote of confidence from the business aviation sector.  It underlines the success of TAG Farnborough Airport’s philosophy -  to consistently offer a five-star service of the highest standard with no compromises – and our position as Europe’s leading business airport,” said Brandon O’Reilly, CEO TAG Farnborough Airport.

TAG Farnborough Airport currently handles approximately 25,000 flights per annum with approval to increase this number to 50,000 by 2019, and is equipped to cater for a wide range of aircraft types including Boeing Business Jets and Airbus Corporate Jets.  As the only dedicated business aviation airport in the UK, it is specifically designed to offer a one-stop shop for business aviation customers and with 240,000 sq ft of heated hangar facilities and 1.2m sq ft of ramp space can accommodate both based and transient aircraft.
