Signature Flight Support acquires three new Caribbean facilities from FBO 2000.
Signature Flight Support has acquired the assets of FBO 2000, the owner of the only full-service fixed-base operator at V.C. Bird International Airport in Antigua.

Maria Sastre, president and COO of Signature Flight Support, said: “We are pleased to welcome three new Caribbean leisure and business destinations to our global portfolio with an established reputation for excellent service. 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.”
The acquisition of these FBOs increases Signature’s global network to over 120 locations.
