Gama Aviation has added a Global 6000 to its European fleet, shortly after inducting two of the same type onto its Asian roster.
Although primarily for private use, the aircraft will be available on a limited basis for charter out of Farnborough, UK. MD for Europe Air Mark Gascoigne comments: "I'm delighted that our client selected us after a hard-fought process. We offer a simple solution that combines our local client service with the ability to leverage our global scale, breadth and depth to support the aircraft wherever and whenever the owner flies."
Gama has also extended its seven-year Scottish Ambulance Service (SAS) contract. Commencing in June 2020 for a further period of three years, the deal is expected to be worth £50m.
"I am delighted that we have been awarded this contract extension," says group chief executive Marwan Khalek. "Our work with SAS over nearly three decades demonstrates the effectiveness of our business model, supplying both air and ground support to deliver mission-critical services where high availability and rapid response times are vital.
"This is testament to the dedication and expertise of our people, resulting in an excellent track record for delivery."
SAS CEO Pauline Howie adds: "Gama Aviation's expertise has been central to delivering our mission in a challenging operational environment and we look forward to continuing our strong relationship with the company into the next decade."
