Gama Aviation wins two aircraft management contracts

Dubai, 16th November - Gama Aviation Plc, the global business aviation services company, is pleased announce the addition of two new aircraft management contracts.

The contracts, to manage an Airbus ACJ and the first Embraer Praetor in the region, come after the company established a GACA Part 125 Operating Certificate, based out of Jeddah, to assist local aircraft owners with the transition to GACA's new regulations.

Dave Edwards, Interim Managing Director, Middle East commented: 'Both aircraft where won through a competitive process and I'm pleased to see that our simple, transparent aircraft management offer has struck a chord with owners in the Kingdom. For too long aircraft owners have suffered from poor service, a lack of quality advice and have not had access to the depth, breadth and scale of support they should expect. We are here to change this, supporting the Kingdom's progressive approach to aviation and its commitment to high regulatory and operational standards.'

The Airbus ACJ will operate charter missions during the second half of 2020 and is an ideal aircraft for families spending time in Switzerland or London next summer. The Praetor 600 will be privately operated and is believed to be the first of its type to enter the region.

Dave Edwards, continues: 'The addition of these two aircraft is a significant vote of confidence in the way that we have approached our business in the Kingdom. Our plan is to continue to build our reputation for managing these assets efficiently and effectively. We believe this provides a platform for providing owners with a guarantee of transparency and an unrelenting focus on managing costs without compromising safety.'
