TAG Farnborough Airport
TAG Farnborough Airport is a carbon-neutral industry-leading facility offering ramp space for bizliners, service centers for Gulfstream and Airbus ACJ, and a rich aviation history.

TAG Farnborough Airport Continues to Grow

TAG Farnborough Airport, a dedicated business aviation facility approximately 35 miles southwest of London, saw 15 percent year-over-year growth in the first 11 months of this year and currently records approximately 30,000 flights per year. The airport has received approval to increase traffic to 50,000 flights per year.

Farnborough is an important destination airport for Middle East operators, in part due to its focus on bizliners such as the Airbus ACJ series and the Boeing BBJ family. Over the past few years, TAG has optimized the terminal for handling the many business aviation passengers who typically use bizliners. With 240,000 square feet (22,300 sq m) of climate-controlled hangar space and 1.2 million square feet of ramp area, the campus is well suited to such large aircraft.

Gulfstream Aerospace selected TAG Farnborough as the site for its London Area Service Centre, expected to be operational by the third quarter of 2020. The facility will include office space, customer areas, shop space, and enough hangar space to accommodate up 13 large-cabin Gulfstreams. The maintenance center will also offer ample ramp space for parking, with the total facility to cover up to 220,000 square feet.

The TAG Aviation Farnborough Maintenance Service Centre has also begun offering line maintenance for the Airbus Corporate Jets ACJ320 series. Onsite support includes daily and weekly maintenance checks and ad hoc troubleshooting, among other services.

On the environmental front, the Airports Council International Europe has awarded TAG Farnborough Airport carbon-neutral status under the Airport Carbon Accreditation standards. That means the council recognizes that the airport has mapped its carbon emissions, reduced CO2 emissions under its direct control, engaged with others on the airport site to reduce their carbon emissions, and invested in responsible and credible programs to offset residual carbon emissions.

Over the last 10 years, TAG Farnborough has reduced such carbon emissions by 42 percent, from 5,242 tonnes in 2008 to 2,183 tonnes this year, and has invested more than $1 million in energy efficiency projects over the past five years.

Finally, TAG Farnborough was named the leading Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Asia-Pacific FBO in BJT sister publication Aviation International News' 2018 FBO Survey.
