TAG Seat


TAG-AI and B/E Aerospace Team Up to Offer High-Quality Custom

Seating on Business and VIP Aircraft

First piece showcased at 2008 EBACE in Geneva

(EBACE, Geneva, May 20, 2008) TAG Aircraft Interiors Ltd. (TAG-AI) will offer high-quality

designer seats and sofas for a variety of large and mid-size business jets through a unique

agreement with B/E Aerospace. The couture line of designer seats and sofas will be available

to completion centres from B/E Aerospace, exclusively in conjunction with interior design

contracts between TAG-AI/Versace and their clientele.

Gianni Versace S.p.A of Milan, Italy and TAG-AI joined forces in April 2006 to create an

exclusive interior design service for private jet owners. Versace Design is responsible for

content, design and style, while TAG-AI manages the logistical and technical aspects of the

interior design contracts, and acts as the marketing and sales agent. Versace's move into

VIP aircraft interiors is a logical extension of the house's expertise in home interior and

fashion design.

"We are pleased to be working with B/E Aerospace, the world's leading manufacturer of

cabin interior products and designs," said Bijan Khezri, managing director of TAG Aircraft

Interiors. "B/E is famous for its global reach to exclusive clientele and supplies more than

70 percent of all executive aircraft seating produced worldwide. This arrangement is a

logical step towards meeting our objectives and reaching, on a larger scale, those jet

owners who demand the exclusivity of Versace-inspired completions."

For the initial collaboration, the team decided to use the patented Ultimate Comfort

Technology (UCT), a new B/E Aerospace passenger comfort seating system that perfectly

balances functionality, reliability, style and comfort. The FAA-certified system complies with

stringent 16G seating regulations. The seats feature UCT's intuitive ergonomic controls,

including a 360-degree swivel capability, and Versace's unique luxury and craftsmanship: a

clean approach to design, high-end materials, leathers of the finest quality, exquisitely

embroidered classic Greek key motifs and high-lustre metal surfaces.

B/E will unveil the first product of the new collaboration at the 2008 European Business

Aviation Convention (EBACE) in Geneva, Switzerland at booth 947. "The ability to couple

the superior performance of the UCT seating line with the exceptional styling and interior

design services of TAG-AI will set the bar very high for the industry," Khezri added.

TAG Aircraft Interiors, a subsidiary of TAG Group, is the supplier for the most exclusive

aviation interiors in the world. The company's clients are owners of larger business jets

who want their airplanes to have the same exclusive comfort and designer styling as their

luxury home furnishings.

B/E Aerospace, Inc. is the world's leading manufacturer of aircraft cabin interior products,

and the leading aftermarket distributor of aerospace fasteners. The company designs,

develops and manufactures a broad range of products for both business and commercial

jets. Products include aircraft cabin seating, lighting, oxygen, and food and beverage

preparation and storage equipment. The company also provides cabin interior design,

reconfiguration and passenger-to-freighter conversion services. Headquartered in

Wellington, Florida, B/E Aerospace's manufacturing facilities are located throughout North

America and Europe.
