Mark Johnstone Appointed Managing Director Of BBA Aviation Flight Support's EMEA Region

BBA Aviation Flight Support announces the appointment of Mark Johnstone as Managing Director EMEA.  BBA Aviation Flight Support’s EMEA region is comprised of Signature Flight Support with 25 locations supporting business and general aviation and Aircraft Service International Group (ASIG) servicing commercial airlines at 18 airports.

BBA Aviation Flight Support’s EMEA operations are undergoing a period of significant growth following the recent contract awards for passenger and ground handling services at London Heathrow’s new Terminal 2.  The growth of operations at Heathrow will rank ASIG as the second largest independent employer at the airport, with an over 2,000 strong team of ASIG and Signature Flight Support personnel.

Johnstone has been with BBA Aviation for six years and was most recently Managing Director of APPH, having previously spent three years as CFO of Signature Flight Support. Johnstone also served as BBA Group Corporate Development Director. His detailed knowledge of the BBA Aviation Group and of the Flight Support operations position him well to lead BBA Aviation’s Flight Support EMEA operations in the next phase of their development.

Johnstone reports to S. Michael Scheeringa, President and Chief Executive Officer for BBA Aviation’s Flight Support Division.
