Business aviation services provider Gama Aviation has made its foray into the flourishing Middle Eastern aircraft and passenger-handling market following the opening of its fixed-base operation at Sharjah International Airport in late January.
Gama began operations in the Emirates in 2004, from where it has built a host of service offerings including aircraft management, charter and maintenance.
Gama said it has been "instrumental in expanding the airport's business aviation activity, with a number of its UAE fleet based there, and today the airport handles growing and substantial business aviation movements each year".
Dave Edwards, managing director of Gama's Middle East operation, added: "The opportunities for business aviation at the airport are superb. The infrastructure lends itself to a quick and efficient service. The airport's location is very convenient for Sharjah, the Northern Emirates, and particularly for passengers travelling to Dubai."
