As this year's Asian Business Aviation Conference and Expo, ABACE 2014, Shanghai, China gets underway, Gama Aviation, the global business aviation services company, Stand P501 is maximising its presence at the event by promoting its valuable "glocal" - global and local - knowledge to Asian delegates.  After more than a year of operations in Asia Gama Aviation has seen a significant increase in activity from the Asian region and anticipates that this figure will escalate substantially over the next twelve months as it continues to promote its international aviation offering. With its Hong Kong office complemented by operational bases in the Middle East, Europe and North America, the company is well placed to offer a variety of charter services to delegates wishing to head to Europe for the continent's wide array of summer events.

"Gama Aviation's Hong Kong location offers full turnkey facilities to our growing worldwide customer base and helps attract Asian clients from all sectors who enjoy visiting Europe during their leisure time, as well as on business.  Executives are under considerable pressure to perform and spend less time with their families so holiday and leisure time become ever more precious. Using a private jet to maximise this time has immense worth for a family who relish their time together," says Albert Kwong, Manager Business Development, Gama Aviation Asia.

Gama Aviation prides itself on sharing knowledge between its bases to provide clients seeking the same standards of on the ground support whether flying in Europe, Asia, the Middle East or the USA. "We understand our clients need convenient access to the Season's key events such as the Ryder Cup in Glasgow, where Gama runs the FBO, the Formula 1 racing series taking place in elite destinations including Monaco, the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis championships in London, yachting's America's cup in Valencia, or the Cannes Film Festival in the South of France, and our local knowledge underpins our clients' experience," continues Kwong.

With a versatile fleet that includes a Gulfstream 550, Legacy 600, Falcon 2000 and Challenger 604 Gama Aviation offers a portfolio of aircraft that can cover the full range of Europe's biggest seasonal events. Whether providing a short flight from London to Paris for the Roland Garros Tennis championship or flying further afield for example from Paris to Moscow for the Formula 1 Grand Prix Gama Aviation can serve a wide range of charter services.

Gama Aviation's top leisure destinations

"If we look at a list of our most popular summer destinations in Europe these include Paris Le Bourget, Moscow Vnukovo, Nice, Olbia, and the Greek and Balearic islands where yachting is popular," says Kwong, "We find our Asian clients will often take first class to Europe and then use our services for the local European legs of their trip. Our team in Europe is well positioned to support all their needs and have all preparations in place before the client arrives. As a truly global operator this guarantee of local knowledge and service is something clients value enormously," he adds.

 "The Asian market continues to grow and we are committed to supporting sustainable business growth that supports the client's needs both locally and internationally. We've also seen an increasing number of flights to the Asian region and we are pleased to be able to provide support for our passengers on both sides of the trip," Kwong concludes.
