BBA Aviation, the owner of Signature Flight Support, has completed the US$2.065bn acquisition of Landmark Aviation, representing a major expansion of Signature’s global FBO network.
As part of the acquisition, Signature had to divest co-located FBO locations at Westchester County Airport, New York; Washington Dulles International Airport, Virginia; Scottsdale Airport, Arizona; Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, Alaska; Fresno Yosemite International Airport, California; and Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport, California. The group now has 195 FBO locations located throughout North America, Europe, South America, the Caribbean, Africa and Asia.
“Today we celebrate the successful acquisition of Landmark Aviation. We are so pleased and proud to welcome Landmark’s 3,000 global employees to the BBA Aviation and Signature Flight Support teams. Our customers will benefit immensely from the substantially expanded global footprint of the Signature Flight Support network. This acquisition also significantly enhances our Signature TECHNICAir MRO business and we look forward to offering aircraft charter and management services to our customers,” stated Maria Sastre, president and COO of Signature Flight Support.
The acquisition of Landmark Aviation’s aircraft management and charter division, which has 110 aircraft under management, is structured to be US Department of Transportation compliant and extends the services that BBA Aviation can offer its customers.
Signature will rebrand all of the FBO locations as Signature Flight Support through a phased approach. Once a facility is completely rebranded, customers will receive the benefits of Signature’s world-class customer service, Signature TailWins and Signature Status rewards programs.
