Transportes Aéreos Guatemaltecos, known as TAG Airlines, presented its new corporate image and relaunched its brand at an event attended by Shirley Aguilar, Guatemala’s Deputy Foreign Minister, Francis Argueta Aguirre, Director of Aeronáutica Civil and Anayansy Rodríguez, Director of the Guatemalan Tourism Institute ( INGUAT).

Marcela Toriello, President of TAG Airlines, assured that the company had begun “a new era”. She stressed that the company “will reaffirm its firm commitment to air connectivity and development, through a profound process of modernization”.

The first one, registrated as TG-ATD, joined the TAG Airlines fleet last July 1st and completed its first scheduled commercial flight between Guatemala City’s La Aurora International Airport (GUA) and Mundo Maya International Airport (FRS), the airline’s two main hubs.

The company plans to have a total of four aircraft of the type through a lease agreement with Willis Lease Finance.
