Gainjet Ireland adds another Gulfstream 650 to their fleet
Gainjet, the European based, Kuwaiti funded has launched an AOC service based in Shannon and is looking at the possibility of opening an FBO there. Company sales manager Gavin Thompson said the IAA’s flexibility led to its choice for the base which “has given us a great foundation to build on”. Gainjet Shannon is geographically well placed to service traffic, largely VVIP Leisure and Governmental from the region to the US East Coast.
The move comes as Shannon Airport begins a campaign to leverage its US pre-clearance to woo more Middle-East business aviation traffic as a tech and pre-clearance stop. “The pre-clearance not only speeds up passenger arrival in the US but also widens the network of more than 300 local domestic US airports that operators can fly into” said Andrew Murphy, Cheif Commercial Manager, Shannon Group. Kuwait Airways is now using Shannon Airport as tech and pre-clearance for its daily Boeing 777 service to JFK.
