Gama Aviation Plc, the global aviation services group, has released the architectural concept for its proposed business aviation facility in Sharjah.

The facility, the first purpose built location of its type in Sharjah, will replace its existing facility and is a cornerstone to the company's continued expansion in the region. Once completed, mid-2018, the facility will comprise of:

  • World class passenger and crew facilities
  • One 100 metre hangar with an option to add a second in due course
  • Hangars able to accommodate all business aircraft including Airbus ACJ & Boeing BBJ aircraft
  • Approx. 20,000 sqm's of external aircraft parking
  • Approx. 150 sqm of commercial office space for tenants

Sharjah International has seen business aviation traffic rise due to its proximity to the financial districts of Dubai. Capacity restrictions at Dubai International and the driving distance to Dubai South have also helped Sharjah International develop as a business aviation destination with traffic rising by 12 %

Martin Ringrose, General Manager, Gama Aviation commented: "We have made excellent progress this year; our Air business growing the fleet by 33% and the Ground business benefiting from increased traffic and an adjusted pricing model. So to close the year at MEBAA with our concept for Sharjah is exciting.  As the model and renders show (MEBAA pavilion P8), we'll have an outstanding facility that mirrors the high standard of our existing lounge. With ground works starting shortly, that reality will not be so very far away."

Marwan Khalek, Group Chief Executive, Gama Aviation Plc commented: "To see our Middle East business maturing in this way is very satisfying. Martin and his team have had a good year in what remains a tricky market. Consolidating our position allows us greater latitude to continue develop our scale, breadth and depth in other regional markets that we have yet to fully penetrate as we look to double the scale of the Group's business over the next two years."
