Signature Flight Support (Booth K51) has opened its new FBO facility at the UK’s Birmingham Airport. The structure replaces the previous 1930’s-era terminal that was damaged by flooding in 2018.
The world’s largest private aviation service provider, Signature had been operating from a temporary facility until the opening of the new building. Construction took three months plus an additional month of interior finishing. The 222-sq-m (2,400-sq-ft) facility features a passenger lounge, refreshment bar, in-house security screening, pilot lounge, and electric vehicle charging station.
“The newly-built FBO in Birmingham reflects the resilience of our team and the importance of this location within our EMEA network,” said Daniel Myles, the company’s area director for the UK. “General aviation continues to be a commercial driver to both the airport and Birmingham city and we look forward to greeting attendees of the upcoming Commonwealth Games and Women’s UEFA Football Championship this summer.”
