Gama Aviation introduces Category Zero handling at Sharjah International Airport
Gama Aviation 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.
The company has seen an increase in the popularity of light aircraft types in the Gulf Region; as such, its new Category Zero class of aircraft and existing offering at Sharjah, which include a range of hangar and parking solutions, will accommodate a more diverse range of visiting and based aircraft. In fact, new research by Gama Aviation has revealed there are 128 light aircraft in the Middle East, accounting for 16% of its overall business jet fleet.
“We want to ensure that the excellent service at our Sharjah FBO is extended to all private aviation users.”
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.”
This extension of services follows an announcement earlier this month that Gama Aviation had been given formal approval to expand its operations at Sharjah International Airport with the building of a new business aviation facility.
