  • ANALYSIS: What to expect at this year's Farnborough

    News | 18 Jun 2014 12:42 | Murdo Morrison

    Farnborough air show boss Shaun Ormrod admits that hosting a major air show is harder than it used to be. A generation ago – with the industry concentrated in North America and western Europe and focused on a small number of events – the biennial UK gathering was a must-attend. Similarly, with fewer distractions, being able to lure families in their tens of thousands at the weekend to watch an air display and buy some ice cream was a given; it was the era before competition from theme parks, mega shopping malls and interactive video games.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-What-to-expect-at-this-years-Farnborough-400246/

  • EBACE: VIP operator's Rwanda move is Africa's Gain

    News | 21 May 2014 12:11 | Murdo Morrison

    ​Charter operator GainJet  is to open a base in Kigali, Rwanda in a bid to “supply the African market with a true ultra-long range VIP travel experience”. The Athens-based company will station a 2012 Gulfstream G550 in the Rwandan capital, which it says “can link directly the US East Coast and South East Asia to many African capitals”. GainJet president Capt Ramsey Shaban says there is a gap in the market for “true VIP operators” in east and central Africa. “Kigali is a natural aviation hub which sits at the centre of the continent and the government of Rwanda has offered us the right incentives,” he says.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/EBACE-VIP-operators-Rwanda-move-is-Africas-Gain-399581/
