TAG's boutique hotel marks 10th birthday next month


Inthree weeks' time the 2018 Farnborough International Airshow opens to

the world's aerospace fraternity.  Build up is well advanced and Aviator

hotel, which marks its 10th anniversary at the end of July, is gearing up to welcome its resident and corporate hospitality guests.

Some5,300 slices of lemon will be cut for drinks' garnish; 1,350 glasses of

champagne consumed; over 3,000 napkins will be folded and an average

600,000 steps will be walked by the front of house food and beverage

team during Airshow week.

The word 'Airshow' will be repeated eight

times a day by each of the 250 permanent and freelance employees by the

front of house food and beverage team.

Bookingsfor Aviator's Brasserie tables started six months ago from companies in

sectors including aircraft finance and leasing; law and a healthy

cluster of business aviation companies.

Many are repeat customers who have found the convenience of being a five-minute walk away from the rear enclosure of the hotel to the Show's Gate A entrance, a highly

convenient and relaxed experience.  They can come and go as they please,

if they have air show visitor tickets (not included in Aviator's

hospitality packages).  Guests also enjoy privileged use of Aviator's

private car park.


Forcompanies who haven't booked an exhibition stand or chalet but do want

to meet with clients in a more discreet and relaxed setting, Aviator

offers the ultimate Airshow corporate hospitality package from just £75

per person, including wine.


Onits three-course lunch menu this year head chef Matt Mitka and his team

are offering a variety of dishes, including Tequila cured mackerel with

pickled vegetables, fennel purée and tempura oysters and Pan fried and

confit leg of guinea fowl with sweetcorn purée, gooseberries and

pressing of purple potato.


"Aviatoris a great place to do business, entertain clients and reward

colleagues," says General Manager Dominic Osborne.  It is his first air

show, having joined the luxury TAG Group-owned boutique hotel in

November 2016, after two decades at The Hilton and Malmaison hotel

chains, but he is relishing it.  He can also depend on an accomplished

team who have supported five air shows since the hotel opened in July


"We are virtually full now with our 169 bedrooms and suites, but Airshow

week is mainly single occupancy, so in terms of guests in house it won't

be as busy as the Christmas/New Year period for us.   Along with our

guests, of whom many are overseas exhibitors at the show, we are looking

forward to hosting some 1,000 visitors for corporate hospitality

throughout the week - in our six meeting rooms, our two AA Rosette

Brasserie, American diner One Eleven and upstairs destination cocktail

Sky Bar."

Aviatorhas limited availability for corporate hospitality in the Brasserie

during air show week, open from 12.30 to 5.30 pm, which offers a great

view of the afternoon's air show from the exclusive, private terrace.
