Signature Adds U.K. Location To Its Network
Signature Flight Support this month said it has won a competition to operate a new FBO at the Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield (RHADS), in England. The airport, located on the site of the former RAF Finningley airbase, serves central and northern England. Signature said its facility at the airport will be RHADS's first business aviation center offering dedicated parking for passengers and aircrew, separate lounges and a fully equipped operations room. The FBO also will provide Customs, Immigration and Special Branch assistance. Operational support will include fueling, flight planning, meteorological reports and slot acquisition. Catering, cleaning, lavatory and water service will also be available.
David Best, Signature’s European managing director, said, “We are delighted to have been chosen by Robin Hood Airport to manage its first purpose-built Business Aviation Center. Our operation there, scheduled to open May 1, 2006, will provide existing and new customers with the same comprehensive services they have come to expect from Signature Flight Support all over the world.” With the addition of Robin Hood Airport, Signature’s global network grows to 81 locations including 20 in Europe, 46 in the United States, 1 in Africa, and joint venture operations in Brazil (13) and Hong Kong (1).
