Gama Aviation expands business aviation estate at Sharjah International Airport


Gama Aviation has expanded its operations at Sharjah International Airport in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) following the acquisition of additional aircraft parking space to meet the growing demand for business aviation at the airport and across the region.

As part of the agreement Gama Aviation’s FBO and MRO teams will also be personally supervising the business aircraft left in their care, ensuring clients receive the highest possible levels of service.

The company has also reduced basic handling prices at the Sharjah FBO by 20% to ensure that it remains competitive with similar offerings in the region, notably Dubai World Central.

This reduction in costs is just one part of a global review of Gama Aviation’s contracts across all areas of its operations. Due to its increased size following its merger with Hangar8 in January 2015, the company is able to make considerable costs savings and pass these on to the benefit of its customers.

Martin Ringrose, Gama Aviation’s managing director for the Middle East region, commented, “The Gama Aviation FBO at Sharjah is now very much a mature business, providing an offering distinct to other FBOs in the region.

“Sharjah offers convenience for business travelers in terms of slot availability and through quicker onward ground transportation to many locations in the UAE – most notably downtown Dubai. All of this is achieved with the high quality, client-focused service that our customers can rightly expect from a globally leading aviation service provider.”
