For the full year 2018, TAG Farnborough Airport saw a year-on-year increase in air traffic movements of 13.8%, with initial forecasts indicating this positive trend is set to continue in 2019. 

TAG Farnborough Airport serves customers from around the world and in 2018 noted substantial growth in air traffic movements to and from the U.S., with an increase of 22.5% year-on-year, as well as Europe, up by 15.5%.

“TAG Farnborough airport’s improved performance last year is a tribute to the dedication of all our employees and represents a clear vote of confidence from the business aviation sector.  It underlines the success of TAG Farnborough Airport’s philosophy - to consistently offer a five-star service of the highest standard with no compromises - and our position as Europe’s leading business airport,” said Brandon O’Reilly, CEO TAG Farnborough Airport.

“2018 was an important year of milestones for TAG Farnborough Airport.  We were delighted to be selected by Gulfstream as the location for a state of the art, purpose-built maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facility and to be awarded carbon neutral status, the first business aviation airport in the world to achieve this.”

TAG Farnborough Airport currently handles more than 30,000 flights per annum, with approval to increase this number to 50,000 and is equipped to cater for a wide range of aircraft types including Boeing Business Jets and Airbus Corporate Jets.

As the only dedicated business aviation airport in the UK, it is specifically designed to offer a one-stop shop for business aviation customers and with 240,000 sq ft of heated hangar facilities and 1.2m sq ft of ramp space can accommodate both based and transient aircraft.
