Sharjah carrier to take off

Aerovista Gulf Express has received permission from the UAE’s General Civil Aviation Authority to launch charter services in the country.

Aerovista Gulf Express has received an Air Operator's Certificate (AOC) from the UAE’s General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA). The Sharjah-based company can therefore move ahead with its plans to develop a charter airline, beginning with its Boeing 737 that is already operating in the UAE. Aerovista also has plans to establish a travel agency to help it grow its business.

"The decision to open a travel agency was taken due to a growing market demand,” says Apandi Lakhiyalov, the airline’s managing director. “To meet the increasing demand, we have decided to launch an integrated business model. Our aim is to provide customers with a safe and reliable point-to-point travel service by offering appealing products for both the leisure and business market. The message to our customers is: You decide where and when you want to go and what you want to do when you get there, we will fix the rest.”
