signature flight support emea region updates and upgrades
October 16, 2018
Signature Flight Support’s EMEA region announced several developments for business and general aviation customers which improve efficiency and access at key locations.
Signature Flight Support was named as the Baltic Air Charter Association’s (BACA) Handling Agent/FBO of the year. A prestigious honor bestowed upon the Handling Agent/FBO that offers superior quality and customer service to the air charter industry.
London Luton (LTN) removed the night time flight ban restriction effective October 1, 2018. This development has greatly improved access for customers departing in the late evening or arriving into Luton in the early morning hours. Upcoming closure for runway maintenance at London Luton Airport will be on November 10, 11, 17 and 18 from 0001L to 0530L.
An upcoming restriction, relating to aircraft exceeding QC1 standards, will make those aircraft ineligible for night-time slots during the summer of 2019. Operators are encouraged to visit the Signature website for updates on night-time access to London Luton next summer.
Signature’s comprehensive UK and Ireland network of FBOs offers alternative choices during these periods.
Signature’s London Biggin Hill (BQH) facility is now newly IS-BAH certified joining Signature London Luton (LTN) and Signature Nice (NCE). Signature is also in the process of certifying its Dublin (DUB) and Shannon (SNN), Ireland facilities to meet the IS-BAH criteria with plans for certifying additional locations in 2019. Signature Shannon is operating 24/7 with U.S. Customs and Border Protection Pre-Clearance making Shannon an ideal tech stop for fuel and pre-clearance into the U.S.
Signature Milan (LIN) has recently added a Maserati Levante, a luxury SUV to its portfolio as a VIP benefit.
Evie Freeman, Managing Director for Signature EMEA noted, “Our team has been extremely focused on providing world-class customer service at all of our locations in Europe. We are especially honored to be recognized as the Handling Agent/FBO of the Year by the Baltic Air Charter Association. We see this as recognition for the hard work, innovation and especially safety that Signature Flight Support provides for its customers. We’re also pleased, as are our customers, to have the night-time flight ban lifted at London Luton. This development has dramatically increased access to the London area for our customers, especially those travelling to or from the Americas.”
Signature Flight Support is exhibiting at the National Business Aviation Association’s Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition in Orlando, Florida in booth #1600. The show runs from October 16-18 at the Orange County Convention Center.
