TAG Farnborough Airport (Booth 344), part of the TAG Group of aviation services companies, has unveiled plans for new facilities that will include additional premium office space available for rent, and a customer-dedicated second entrance to the airport.
Plans for the expansion, revealed for the first time here at EBACE, follow the company’s recent purchase of a 38,000-sq-ft office building and associated land on the airport’s northeast boundary, which TAG plans to incorporate within the airport boundary. In addition to creating a second entrance to the site, subject to planning permission, the expansion will provide space in the TAG terminal for additional passenger lounges and enhanced facilities, with further details due to be announced later in the year, said the company.
“We are committed to identifying ways to better serve our customers and employees and, as a growing airport, we need to plan for the future,” said Brandon O’Reilly, CEO of TAG Farnborough Airport. “With our proposed improvements we will continue to offer a seamless service as demand increases, and to maintain our position as the leading business aviation gateway to London.”
TAG Farnborough Airport completed more than $150 million in infrastructure improvements in 2012, and was among the first airports to introduce a “drive-through” passport control service, which reduces potential waiting times for customers during busy periods.
The airport’s business aviation facilities provide direct ramp access, concierge service, a crew room with snooze facilities, as well as aircraft maintenance and servicing by TAG Farnborough Engineering.
