Signature Acquires Again
The latest addition to Signature Flight Support's growing network of fixed-base operations (FBOs) is the former Million Air facility at the Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport (TRM) in Thermal, Calif. The newly acquired facility is the chain’s second location in the popular Palm Springs resort area, joining Signature’s operation at Palm Springs International Airport (PSP). The purchase also represents the company’s third acquisition in California in the last four months. As of late February, Signature Flight Support operates facilities at forty-six (46) airports in the United States, nineteen (19) in Europe, one (1) in Africa, and has joint ventures in South America (13) and Asia (1).
“This transaction further strengthens Signature’s position as the world’s leading FBO network, with more locations at major business centers, key reliever airports and – as in this case – high end resort destinations, than any other FBO or FBO chain,” said Signature Flight Support parent company BBA Aviation Services Group president and CEO, Bruce Van Allen. With the new acquisition, Signature continues as the world’s largest FBO chain and distribution network for business aviation services.
