Avia continues to strengthen in the UK with Hangar 510 purchase
Avia Solutions Group has purchased a Biggin Hill airport hangar, which includes Signature Flight Support and Bombardier among its tenants. This follows previous investments it has made in British aerospace in 2021.
Avia's acquisition of Biggin Hill Hangar Company follows in Jet MS footsteps, its business and regional aviation MRO subsidiary, as it purchased RAS Group in March 2021.

Avia Solutions Group has acquired Biggin Hill Hangar Company, the owner of Hangar 510, a premium FBO and MRO centre of operations at London Biggin Hill airport.

Hangar 510 boasts several business aviation names as its tenants including Signature Flight Support, a network of fixed base operators and Bombardier, a business jet manufacturer.

Vygaudas Usackas, member of the board of directors of Avia says: “We are pleased to announce the acquisition of this fantastic operation, based at one of Europe's fastest-growing business aviation airports. We look forward to working with business operators and the airport to continue delivering exceptional quality services for passengers, aircraft owners and fleet operators landing and departing from London Biggin Hill Airport.”

Avia's acquisition of Biggin Hill Hangar Company follows in Jet MS footsteps, its business and regional aviation MRO subsidiary, as it purchased RAS Group, an aircraft interior, exterior and completions specialist based at the airport, in March 2021.

The transaction strengthens Avia's presence in the UK's aviation services market. In August 2021, its subsidiary Storm Aviation Limited acquired Manchester-based Chevron Technical Services and its Prestwick-based subsidiary Chevron Aircraft Maintenance.
