By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Edmonton, Canada – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

Signature Flight Support has signed an agreement with Airside FBO Operations Ltd., of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada to become a fully licensed Signature Flight Support location. Located at Edmonton International Airport (CYEG), Signature Edmonton will be the company’s second Canadian fixed base operation, joining Signature Montreal at Pierre Trudeau Montreal International Airport (CYUL).

Signature Flight Support President, S. Michael Scheeringa, said, “We have had proven success with Signature Montreal and our other global licensed and Signature Select locations and feel very strongly that we’ll bring the same experience to Edmonton.

“Signature’s dedication to providing a world-class customer service experience is now extended to western Canada with this agreement. We warmly welcome the staff of Edmonton to the Signature family.”

President of Airside FBO Operations, Bill McGoey, added, “We are very proud to be joining the Signature network and we look forward to introducing a new level of customer service and flight support to the Edmonton market.”

Signature Edmonton is a newly-built and modern facility consisting of four – 20,000 sq. ft. hangars, a 9,000 sq. ft. FBO facility, and more than 30,000 sq. ft. of office space. The facility will offer full ground handling and fueling support and will deliver the full portfolio of Signature Flight Support services including the Signature TailWins pilot rewards program. Signature will deploy its global sales and marketing programs to support this new location.

Edmonton, Alberta is close to the oil sands region of Canada. The facility is equipped to support aircraft traveling to and from mining locations as well as tourism and business travelers. Edmonton International Airport will be the primary airport serving Edmonton after Edmonton City Centre Blatchford Field Airport (CYXD) closes.

Signature Flight Support Corporation, a BBA Aviation plc company, is the world’s largest fixed-base operation (FBO) and distribution network for business aviation services. Signature services include fueling, hangar and office rentals, ground handling, maintenance and a wide range of crew and passenger amenities at strategic domestic and international locations. Headquartered in Orlando, Florida, Signature currently operates at more than 100 locations in the United States, Europe, South America, Africa and Asia.
