TAG Aviation Europe has been awarded an Air Operators Certificate (AOC) from the Transport Malta – Civil Aviation Directorate (TMCA). The granting of the AOC is the culmination of several months of planning, and reaffirms TAG’s commitment to continue its expansion into new EU territories. The company has already sourced its first aircraft, a Challenger CL-605, with more to be added later in the year.
TAG Aviation Europe is well known for providing a range of business aviation services, including aircraft management, charter maintenance, FBO/handling and bespoke crew training. It has bases in Switzerland, the UK and Spain, with a fleet of more than 80 aircraft.
Daniel Christe, CEO, TAG Aviation Europe, said, “Receiving the Maltese AOC marks a significant milestone in strengthening TAG’s foundations to pursue the growth of its managed fleet of corporate jets. It further enhances our ability to start operations within a very short period of time and to meet our commitment to provide the highest level of responsiveness and customer service standards.
“We look forward to a thriving cooperation with the TMCA to help us in surpassing our customers’ expectations, and to contributing toward the development of business aviation within this commercially abundant Commonwealth state.”
