TAG Aviation’s luxury B757 made a rare visit during this year’s Farnborough International Airshow (FIAS), with the distinctive high-gloss ‘black pearl’ touching down on the tarmac, following a number of very successful international private charters over the summer.
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 clubs are using aircraft charters for international pre-season tours in order to maximise publicity in new markets in preparation for the new season.

“The B757 has chartered premier football teams on one and two night stay-overs this summer to destinations including Astana, Gothenburg, Baku and Bremen” said John Tarmar, Director of B757 Operations, TAG Aviation (UK) Ltd. “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 B757 was transformed 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). With mood lighting, hand-woven wool carpeting, leather lacobucci designer seating, upgraded bathrooms, steam ovens and wine fridges, the aircraft is tailored to meet guests’ every needs, with an unsurpassed level of luxury. 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 will continue with four weeks from 10 October to 3 November 2016 and three months from 22 November 2016 to 21 February 2017. To enquire about the B757 chartering availability please contact TAG Aviation Charter Services:
