Signature Flight Support Acquires Three New Caribbean Locations in Antigua, St. Kitts and Nevis

Signature Flight Support, a BBA Aviation company, announced today that it has acquired the assets of FBO 2000 including its locations at V.C. Bird Antigua International Airport (ANU), R. Bradshaw International Airport (SKB) in St. Kitts and Vance W. Amory International Airport in Nevis (NEV).

Signature Antigua (ANU) will offer customers an executive terminal, lounge, offices and two hangars. Signature Antigua’s significant aircraft to yacht service makes the island a highly desirable luxury leisure travel destination. Signature Nevis (NEV) and St. Kitts (SKB) offer passenger handling and coordination services to expedite clearance through customs and immigration to and from the destinations.  Both locations have offices on their respective airports and provide services to assist customers and crew while they are visiting the islands.

This strategic acquisition adds three new locations to Signature’s growing Caribbean network of locations including San Juan, Puerto Rico (SIG) and St. Maarten (SXM).  Signature Antigua and St. Kitts both have extensive aircraft parking capabilities and during peak seasonal periods, offer a convenient option for remote parking for customer aircraft traveling to St. Maarten. In addition, Signature recently announced a licensing agreement with Blue Heron Aviation of the Turks and Caicos which is currently under construction and expected to open in the fall of 2014.

“We are pleased to welcome three new Caribbean leisure and business destinations to our global portfolio with an established reputation for excellent service.  We look forward to welcoming the staff at Antigua, St. Kitts and Nevis to the Signature family and to providing Signature’s world-class service for our customers visiting the islands,” noted Maria Sastre, President and Chief Operating Officer for Signature Flight Support.

Signature Flight Support offers its full suite of world-class customer service and flight support including its pilot rewards program Signature TailWins®.  This acquisition increases Signature’s global network to over 120 locations.
