Gama Aviation achieves IS-BAH registration for Sharjah FBO

Posted 4 March 2016 · Add Comment

Gama Aviation has been awarded International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) for its Fixed Base Operations (FBO) at Sharjah International Airport.

The accreditation, made by the International Business Aviation Council, is the first for a Middle East-based FBO and only the 15th successful implementation worldwide. It follows Gama Aviation’s Sharjah operations being awarded the FBO of the Year award at the 2015 Aviation Business Awards. The Awards recognised the high quality offering provided by Gama Aviation at Sharjah, including dedicated immigration and customs screening facilities, a stunning lounge setting, a food and beverage team, wireless internet, television, communal iPads for passengers and crew, fine art installations, along with VIP restrooms and shower facilities. 

Martin Ringrose, managing director for Gama Aviation Middle East, said: “I am delighted that the Gama Sharjah FBO is setting the standard for quality within the Middle East. It’s a tribute to the hard work of our staff and those who support us within Sharjah International Airport. This accreditation recognizes the quality of our product which, combined with our convenient access to Downtown Dubai, and value for money for the services we provide, makes Sharjah the intelligent gateway to Dubai and the Northern Emirates.” 

This registration follows an announcement earlier this month that Gama Aviation had been given formal approval to expand its operations at Sharjah International Airport with the building of a new business aviation facility.  The facility is designed to meet the needs of the Middle East business aviation market which is expected to grow by 7% a year between now and 20241.
