Signature Aviation, the world’s largest private aviation terminal operator, has opened a newly built private aviation facility at Des Moines International Airport (DSM) in Iowa.
The greenfield project features a 5,000 square foot guest terminal and is accompanied by a 30,000 square foot hangar and office area.
The hangar includes a 27’ door opening and can space large business jets to the size of the Bombardier Global 6500, Dassault Falcon 7x, and Gulfstream G700.
The 20-month construction project has produced a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified terminal.
The facility joins nine other LEED certified locations within Signature’s network, including the recent opening in Bedford, Massachusetts.
“As one of the fastest growing cities in the Midwest, Des Moines is a key stop for aircraft operators traveling to and from Iowa, and a vital aspect of Signature’s presence in the region,” said Derek DeCross, chief commercial officer for Signature Aviation. “The design and amenities at the reimagined Signature Des Moines will instantly make it one of the most recognizable and unforgettable stops within our network, bringing an exceptional experience to life for every guest.”
Signature’s commitment to exceptional guest experiences will continue into the new year with additional facility openings and remodels, beginning with an unveiling at Key West International Airport in early 2024.
