Hewson steps up to promote Middle East fleet
Gama Group has expanded its Middle East fleet with the addition of a Legacy 600 which is to be based at its newest operating base, Al Bateen Executive airport in Abu Dhabi, and appointed a commercial manager to increase its business throughout the region.

Gama Group has expanded its Middle East fleet with the addition of a Legacy 600 which is to be based at its newest operating base, Al Bateen Executive airport in Abu Dhabi, and appointed a commercial manager to increase its business throughout the region.

Oliver Hewson joined Gama Aviation's UAE-based team in 2009 to help establish an AOC operation and set up the regional charter sales division. Born and raised in the UAE, he has experience in business development and sales including a year in Saudi Arabia working for a multinational corporation.

As commercial manager, Hewson will expand his current role which sees him supporting not only Gama's charter and management clients, but other operators and aircraft owners using the company's facilities in Sharjah. He will report directly to Gama's general manager Richard Lineveldt.

The Legacy 600 is expected to be a popular charter aircraft for Gama's charter clients in the Middle East thanks to having two separate cabin zones that allow for increased privacy for up to 13 passengers as well as the largest baggage compartment in its class. It can fly non-stop from Abu Dhabi to destinations such as Geneva, Moscow, Mauritius and Bangkok.
