Signature Flight Support has announced that it has acquired the FBO assets of JETS at London Biggin Hill Airport.
JETS will continue to operate its core business of aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul, while Signature Flight Support will own and operate the FBO assets.
Signature already has bases at London Luton, London Heathrow and London Gatwick. The new Biggin Hill location will be become the company’s closest base to the City of London and Canary Wharf. The airport is not slot-constrained and is a dedicated business and general aviation airport, providing scheduling flexibility to private aircraft.
Maria Sastre, president and CEO of Singature Flight Support, said: “Signature’s acquisition of the London Biggin Hill location brings even more choice for our customers when travelling to London. The proximity of Biggin Hill to the City of London offers significant time-saving advantages and airport choice during peak travel times to and from London.”
Robert Walters, director of business development for London Biggin Hill Airport, said: “Signature’s global footprint and knowledge are unrivalled in the FBO world and we are thrilled to be able to welcome them to Biggin Hill. The airport is embarking on some exciting projects over the next 12 months and Signature’s presence here will only help enhance the experience for existing and new customers alike.”
