With the announcement here at EBACE of the opening of a new FBO facility at Sion in Switzerland, TAG Aviation (Booth 344) has added another major base. Located in the Rhône valley to the east of Lake Geneva, the Sion operation provides a range of passenger, FBO/handling and aircraft maintenance services. It boasts a passenger terminal with three VIP salons and a dedicated crew lounge, a 3,200-sq-m hangar and 12,000 sq m of aircraft parking.

Meanwhile, TAG Aviation Maintenance’s facilities at Sion provide comprehensive services for Dassault Falcon, Bombardier Challenger and Learjet models, as well as a spectrum of line maintenance services for other aircraft types. Among its specialties are avionics upgrades, including the EASy II upgrade for Dassault Falcons.

Sion joins a network of TAG facilities that includes the award-winning FBO here at Geneva.

TAG also operates a major facility at Farnborough in the UK and an FBO at Madrid-Barajas in Spain with a maintenance center at nearby Torrejón. It holds air operator certificates at these three locations and operates two more maintenance centers, one located in Paris and the other in Lomé in Togo.
