Gama Aviation has increased its AOG (airport on ground) peak period support in preparation for the large wave of private jets and football fans expected to arrive in the Bay Area for Super Bowl 50.

With the Federal Aviation Administration expecting around 1,200 private jets to fly in during Super Bowl week, additional peak period support from Gama Aviation has been put in place during this time in the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Aspen, and South America.

Dennis Richey, Executive Vice President, Gama Aviation commented: “We look forward to these special events. We have been positioning our AOG/mobile teams for our customer base at various locations already. We know and understand the time constrains our customers are under. This has allowed us to showcase this part of our business year after year.”
