SIGNATURE FLIGHT SUPPORT TO TAKEOVER WORLD CLASS FBO FACILITY AT LONDON BIGGIN HILL

Signature Flight Support, a BBA Aviation company, announced today that it has signed an agreement with London Biggin Hill Airport (BQH/EGKB) to expand and operate from the former RizonJet FBO facility.

This stunning facility rivals any in the business aviation world in its elegantly appointed private lounge areas and four floors comprising over 20,000 sq. ft. A boardroom and multiple conference areas make it an ideal location for private meetings and available office space makes the facility a perfect venue to house an aviation business or flight department.

“We are pleased to be able to expand our operations at London Biggin Hill, especially in a facility of this caliber. Signature has an exceptional relationship with the airport and our collaboration has yielded excellent results for all involved, our customers, the airport and Signature Flight Support. Having been present on the airport since February 2014 and now with this exquisite FBO coupled with our world-class service, we are ready to welcome our customers from around the globe to London Biggin Hill,” stated Mark Johnstone, Managing Director, BBA Aviation Flight Support EMEA.

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to expand our relationship with Signature Flight Support. The strength and depth of the Signature product is a tremendous asset to the London Biggin Hill and its customers,” stated Robert Walters, Director, London Biggin Hill Airport.

Signature’s expansion at London Biggin Hill comes at a time when the airport is due to roll out several operational and infrastructure projects including new extended operating hours, new GPS approaches as well as a new four star hotel on the airport premises, adjacent to the new Signature facility.

London Biggin Hill offers the fastest entry into London being located a mere 12 miles from downtown or 6 minutes via the London Heli Shuttle. The airport is a designated UK Port of Entry with no slot restrictions, extensive hangarage, support and maintenance services for a range of business jets.

Signature Flight Support will commence operations in their new facility from June 20, 2016. The FBO will be a fully branded Signature Flight Support location.
