Gama Aviation has introduced Category Zero handling for its Fixed Base Operations (FBO) at Sharjah International Airport.

The handling rates have been designed to encourage light aircraft users to use the airport by ensuring the appropriate charging mechanism is available. 

Gama Aviation 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 extensive offering at Sharjah, which include a range of hangar and parking solutions, will accommodate a more diverse range of visiting and based aircraft.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. 

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.”
