Signature Flight Support has launched its Resident Premier programme that offers benefits and advantages to customers based at its FBOs. It has also announced plans for newly reconstructed facilities for its locations at the Des Moines International airport in Iowa and Bedford Hanscom Field in Massachusetts.
The Resident Premier programme, designed in partnership with a 12-member advisory council of Signature based customers, aims to provide a suite of enhancements that appeal to small and medium-sized aircraft operators, extending network-wide benefits typically reserved for large aircraft fleets, including access to discounted fuel and handling throughout many Signature locations in North America and Europe. Its residents also receive complimentary ground power unit service prior to departure and priority for transient hangar space, reducing operating costs and improving dispatch readiness.
Signature is also investing in property, including a ground-up rebuild of a 6,000 sq ft FBO terminal and 3,500 sq ft of office space at Des Moines International airport, in addition to construction of a new 30,000 sq ft hangar.
The Bedford Hanscom Field facility will receive several improvements in two phases, the first of which consists of demolition and construction of a brand new 6,600 sq ft terminal and 12,000 sq ft of new aircraft ramp. Phase two includes enhancing three hangars at the airport with the installation of a fire suppression system and electrical improvements.
