During a ground breaking ceremony at its London Luton airport location, Signature Flight Support announced that it is replacing its present facility with a state-of-the-art 1,572 sq m FBO, along with 4,500 sq m of hangar space capable of housing two BBJ or ACJ-sized aircraft. A dedicated ground service equipment garage will also be built.
Maria Sastre, president and ceo, says: "Signature Luton is a keystone location in our global network, drawing visitors from all over the globe. This facility is designed to accommodate the needs of our discerning customers, both passengers and crew."
Plans are to include the latest technologies for entertainment, communications, passenger and crew amenities and onward travel solutions. A covered car parking and arrival area will protect passengers from inclement weather, while the intention overall is to minimise transit time through the FBO for passengers and crew. Completion of the hangar is expected third quarter 2013 and the FBO and passenger terminal fourth quarter 2014.
