Gama Group, the global business aviation services provider, announced today the award by Transport Canada of a Foreign Air Operator Certificate (FAOC) enabling Gama Aviation to operate flights to, from and within Canada.
The award of a Canadian FAOC to Farnborough, UK based Gama Aviation Ltd is part of its programme of continuing investment in expanding the range of products and services for its clients. Recent enhancements include adding additional aircraft to the charter fleet and expansion of operating bases and regional offices.
Earlier this year, Gama was also awarded by the US Federal Aviation Administration Part 129 approval. This approval gave Gama the ability to conduct unlimited commercial operations into the United States.
“These accreditations actively demonstrate Gama’s continued developments in enhancing the service we are able to offer our clients. These developments go hand in hand with the highest standards of safety, security and a very strict attention to detail in all aspects of our operation.” said Paul Cremer, Commercial Manager Gama Aviation. “Critically we are now able to meet many of our customer’s more challenging needs, such as last minute flight requests to North American and Canadian destinations.”
