Signature opens sports charter terminal at Miami International Airport

Signature Flight Support has opened its new 3,500ft² (325m²) sports charter terminal and accompanying 2,500ft² (232m²) ground services equipment building at Miami International Airport (MIA) in Florida.

The new facility will enable a higher volume of home and visiting professional and collegiate sports teams traveling to and from the Miami area to access MIA via chartered flights. The facility also features FBO and ramp improvements.

Mark Johnstone, group chief executive of BBA Aviation and CEO of Signature Flight Support, said, “Signature Flight Support is pleased to expand access to the city of Miami, create opportunities for new revenue streams, and welcome professional teams, whether it’s a hometown team or one visiting from abroad.

“The new facility will serve as a proper gateway to all the magic the city has to offer. We are committed to continuing to invest in our world-class flight support offering at Miami International Airport and driving new economic development for the community.”

Carty Architecture began the design and development of the sports charter terminal in August 2016, with construction by State Contracting & Engineering Corporation starting in the following year.

Miami plays host to year-round major sports events including the Miami Open, NASCAR’s Ford Championship Weekend at Homestead Miami Speedway, the Orange Bowl and the Miami Marathon. In the coming years, Super Bowl LIV, will take place in Miami in 2020, the 11th to be held in the Miami region, as will the College Football National Championship in 2021.

Lester Sola, director and CEO of the Miami-Dade Aviation Department, added, “The Miami-Dade Aviation Department is proud of its longstanding partnership with Signature Flight Support Miami and is excited to help unveil the new terminal, which will undoubtedly expand access to the greater Miami area and help attract more investment into our local community.”
