TAG Aviation Asia, a subsidiary of TAG Aviation Holding from Switzerland, is expanding its aircraft charter, aircraft management, aircraft completion monitoring and aircraft brokerage services in Hong Kong.

TAG Aviation Asia was granted the coveted Hong Kong Air Operator's Certificate (Hong Kong AOC) by the Civil Aviation Department at an award ceremony held on Thursday. This official document is issued to an airline/business jet operator and attests to the airline/business jet's competence regarding its ability to conduct a safe operation.

CEO of TAG Aviation Asia, Mr. Neil Gibson, said, "Having obtained the Hong Kong AOC, TAG Aviation Asia is now able to offer commercial flights to their clients in Hong Kong-registered aircraft. Becoming an air operator in Hong Kong, we have accomplished a major milestone. Our goals are to grow our business and the business aviation industry to cater for the increasing demand in the Greater China region." 

 The company has hired additional staff and moved into larger offices in Wanchai in a response to growing demand for their services and to facilitate the expansion.

"TAG Aviation Asia's business plan for Hong Kong is long-term. We have significantly invested in our people and infrastructure locally. This city is the ideal starting point for our strategic expansion in Asia and as we continue to grow in the future, Hong Kong will remain our regional headquarters," added Mr. Gibson.

Head of Transportation at Invest Hong Kong, Mr. Benjamin Wong, welcomed the company's business expansion. He said, "TAG Aviation Asia's continued investment and expansion in our city is an illustration of the opportunities in, and strong support of, Hong Kong's aviation industry."

Mr. Wong congratulated TAG Aviation Asia on receiving the Hong Kong AOC. He said, "In the face of current economic challenges, we remain optimistic about the long-term development of the aviation industry in Hong Kong particularly with the growing interest from the Greater China region. The recognition of the quality of service provided by companies like TAG Aviation Asia in Hong Kong helps strengthen the industry and our city's position as a regional aviation hub."
