Category Zero handling introduced at Sharjah International Airport


Gama Aviation Plc has introduced Category Zero handling for its FBO at Sharjah International Airport. These bespoke handling rates have been designed to encourage light aircraft users to use the airport by ensuring the appropriate charging mechanism is available.

Gama Aviation has seen an increase in the popularity of light aircraft types in the Gulf Region and its new Category Zero class of aircraft, and existing offerings at Sharjah, will accommodate a more diverse range of visiting and based aircraft.

Martin Ringrose, managing director for Gama Aviation Middle East, said, “We want to ensure that the excellent service at our Sharjah FBO is extended to all private aviation users. The introduction of our Category Zero class of aircraft ensures that smaller aircraft types have an appropriate charging mechanism, and we hope this move will enable a greater number of clients to take advantage of our services and use us as a gateway to Dubai, Sharjah and the Northern Emirates.”

Gama Aviation had also been given formal approval to expand its operations at Sharjah International Airport with the building of a new business aviation facility. The facility is designed to meet the needs of the Middle East business aviation market, which is expected to grow by 7% a year between now and 2024.
