In a bid to overcome local opposition to its application to increase weekend and holiday operations at London Farnborough Airport to 5,000 movements annually by 2008, TAG Aviation has offered to phase in the increase over the next three years to 3,800 by year-end and to 4,500 next year. The company, which operates Farnborough, has also offered to limit the movements by bizliners to an annual total of 270 on weekends and on public holidays. The current weekend/holiday limit is 2,500 operations annually, while the total annual movement limit at the airport is 28,000.
