Gama Aviation's non-slot restricted FBO at Sharjah International airport is fully open and available to assist operators with transit and crew stayovers traffic operating through the UAE.

The services have been created to assist in the management of flights that require technical, transient fuel or crew duty rest stops. The services are provided with zero slot restrictions into OMSJ, allowing for the fluidity that is a requirement when operating such flights in the prevailing conditions.

For fuel stop transient traffic it offers H24 and zero slot restrictions, good fuel prices, line maintenance for minor technical items and short, fuel efficient taxi times. For crew rest transient traffic it is arranging mandatory COVID-19 tests on arrival; secure, police escorted transfers to nearby high-quality hotel; return, escorted transfers post duty rest; line maintenance, cleaning (external and internal); and fuel and catering for onward travel.

Tom Murphy, commercial manager comments: “We have been working with the authorities to accommodate these transit and crew rest flights, making the experience, in these times, as smooth and convenient to the crews as possible, allowing them to focus on their more important tasks. The situation is, of course, fluid and subject to change, but we would encourage any operator seeking to transit via the UAE to call us as we can help.”
