Gama Aviation announces new Swiss operation:

Sunday 13th May 2012

At the opening of the 12th annual EBACE convention, Gama Group, the global business aviation and services company announces that its newest operational base will be located in Geneva, Switzerland and will open for business in July 2012.

Gama Aviation S.A.'s new Geneva location will offer aircraft management services to existing and potential Gama customers and will also be aiming for a full Swiss AOC by the end of the year.

Gama Aviation S.A.'s office will be located within Geneva Airport's Executive Terminal where the new operation will be led by General Manager, Captain Hamish Ross.

Captain Ross brings with him a wealth of industry knowledge. He has spent over 30 years as an instructor of professional pilot licences, corporate pilot and manager of aviation companies. Most recently Captain Ross was based in Sharjah as Gama Aviation FZE's Director of Flight Operations. During the past two years he has been instrumental in developing the flight operations side of Gama's United Arab Emirates' AOC.

"I am delighted to be able to lead Gama's Swiss based operation" said Captain Ross. "Our new facilities in Geneva complement the recent significant growth in Gama's global offering, now numbering over 30 operational bases around the world. Geneva is located at the centre of modern Europe, and Switzerland offers political and financial stability for the long term. Together these factors create a beneficial business environment very attractive to Gama Aviation's clients, present and future. We want to ensure that those clients are able to choose a locally based company that offers the highest standards of safety and efficiency for their aircraft management or charter needs."
