Gama Aviation Plc, the global aviation services provider, is pleased to announce it has been selected as the preferred bidder for the Wales Air Ambulance Charity contract (“Charity”) for the operation and maintenance of four Medium Size Helicopters. The selection was made by the Charity’s Trustees after an extensive 16-month procurement process.
The Group is now working diligently to agree the final details of the contract with the Charity over the next two months. Operated by the Group’s Special Mission Strategic Business Unit (“SBU”) the 7-year agreement is expected to commence on 1st January 2024. Whilst there can be no guarantee that the contract will be concluded, any award would see the air ambulance rotary aircraft fleet more than double in size, underlining the significance of this multi aircraft, long term contract, to the Group.
Mark Smith, Managing Director, Special Mission, commented:
“We are both proud and honoured to have been selected as the preferred bidder for this strategically significant contract after a hard-fought competition for a nationally important air ambulance contract. The Special Mission SBU will be working closely with the Charity over the coming weeks and months to agree final terms and I look forward to the opportunity of working with Wales Air Ambulance Charity over the coming years.”
