Sharjah Airport to get Executive Jet Facility

March 18- A British company has announced plans to build a multi-million dollar facility for luxury travel at Sharjah International Airport. The airport has a reputation as a center for budget flights and air cargo, so the new facility would be an upgrade and could someday challenge Dubai International Airport’s dominance as a center for executive jet travel. GAMA Aviation said it will invest US$15 million (Dh55.09m) in a hangar facility to operate charter flights and run an aircraft maintenance business.

Marwan Khalek, chief executive of GAMA said “We’re developing a hangar facility to provide some needed infrastructure in business aviation, as the ones in Dubai are saturated.” Khalek said the hangar planned by GAMA will be the first dedicated facility for business jets at Sharjah. The hangar will be between 10,000 square meters and 12,000 square meters.
