Signature Adds Heathrow FBO
Signature Flight Support announced last month the acquisition of Executive Aircraft Services (EAS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Group4Securicor PLC, headquartered at London's Heathrow Airport. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. Signature said the EAS facility is a traditional FBO and that the latest acquisition increases its FBO network to more than 60 locations worldwide, including 42 in the U.S. and 17 in Europe. "EAS represents a major strategic addition to our fast-growing FBO network, both globally and in Europe," said Beth Haskins, president and CEO for Signature Flight Support. "London is a major destination for business aircraft operators and with Signature operations now at both Heathrow and Luton we are ideally positioned to provide the most convenient and cost-effective level of support."
