Signature London Gatwick (LGW) recently completed a renovation of its dedicated fixed base operation. It has also added several new amenities and VIP services to its portfolio.
The modern décor and warm solid wood panels offer the traveler a comfortable respite while transiting to and from the aircraft. New restrooms, kitchen, window treatments and furnishings complete the experience. Also added are two VIP lounges and a crew lounge with business center. Amenities include WiFi internet access, complimentary refreshments and hot breakfasts for passengers upon request.
Signature Gatwick has also recently added a new convenient service for VIP passengers transiting to and from the commercial terminal. With advance notice, Signature can arrange for passenger pick up at the commercial aircraft, transit to the FBO where the customer can clear customs and immigration. This allows the customer to avoid the congestion and wait times normally associated with a commercial terminal. Alternatively, the same service is afforded the traveler who arrives at Gatwick and is transferring to a commercial flight.
Passengers can relax in privacy and board the commercial flight at their leisure. Passenger and baggage screening is contained within the FBO offering additional convenience and time savings. Passengers can utilize the Gatwick Express train service to London’s Victoria Station, a short 30 minute ride, or Signature can arrange for limousine services to and from London’s city center.
Signature Gatwick also has dedicated fueling services to minimize ground time and allow for faster turnarounds. A common misconception about Gatwick is a scarcity of slots, however, according to Evie Freeman, General Manager, “slots are readily available making Gatwick a good choice for the private aviation operator.”
In addition to Gatwick, Signature has convenient UK facilities located a London Heathrow (LHR) and London Luton (LUT). Each offers every amenity and convenience necessary to the private traveler. “With London being one of the busiest aviation gateways, Signature Flight Support offers direct access at three of the city’s core airports with true convenience and a full range of dedicated facilities,” stated Best.
