Signature Flight Support, a US-based fixed-base operator, is expanding in the Caribbean region.
The company announced last week that it had acquired the assets of another operator, FBO 2000, which includes its locations at VC Bird International Airport in Antigua, Robert L Bradshaw International Airport in St Kitts and Vance W Amory International Airport in Nevis.
The Antigua branch will include an executive terminal, lounge, offices and two hangars, the company said. The Nevis and St Kitts FBOS will offer passenger handling and coordination services to expedite customs and immigration clearance.
The three new branches are the latest additions to a network that already includes outposts in San Juan and St Maarten.
Signature also announced a licensing agreement with Blue Heron Aviation of Turks and Caicos, a facility which is currently under construction and slated for opening later this year.
“We are pleased to welcome three new Caribbean leisure and business destinations to our global portfolio with an established reputation for excellent service,” said Maria Sastre, president and Chief Operating Officer for Signature Flight Support. “We look forward to welcoming the staff at Antigua, St Kitts and Nevis to the Signature family and to providing Signature’s world-class service for our customers visiting the islands.”
