Fonnafly is extremely pleased and grateful to have been granted permission to operate a commercial helicopter base at Gibraltar airport. The company is the dominant and largest operator of sightseeing flights in Norway. In particular, the Company serves the cruise industry market place and in 2018 flew more than 2000 sightseeing flights from our 5 bases.
Fonnafly believes the unique location of Gibraltar offers great potential for many of our services. Initially, the Company will focus on the tourist market, in particular the cruise industry and tourists visiting from Spain. However, bearing in mind that Gibraltar is an important shipping location and has an extensive number of law firms and financial institutions, the Company believes there is also the potential for other helicopter services.
Other services the Company can offer are Cargo flights, Taxi flights, Surveillance, Aerial photo services, Ship crew change etc.
