Signature Flight Support Corporation announced today the launch of a new FBO program named Signature SelectT. This innovative program will offer independent FBOs the ability to use the same world-class systems, service and safety standards and training, sales and marketing and purchasing power of Signature Flight Support. Each member company maintains their independent brand with the addition of the Signature SelectT badge.
S. Michael Scheeringa, President of Signature commented, “This new and exciting program will offer members the full suite of Signature services and support extending their reach through our global network. Signature SelectT members will be able to capitalize on Signature Flight Support’s sales and marketing resources and have access to our state-of-the-art FBO management technology systems while maintaining their independence.”
The program features Signature’s proprietary training and audit programs, Service with a Leading Edge© and Safety with a Leading Edge© and its FBO management technology suite, Signature SigNetT. Members will be supported by Signature’s global sales and marketing team and will be promoted along with Signature’s network of over 100 worldwide locations. The network brings value to customers through seamless, personalized customer service, point-to-point coordination of handling and flight support as well as access to Signature’s custom fuel programs. Additional value for members may be achieved through the purchasing power of the Signature network. Member FBOs will also participate in Signature’s online reservation system and proprietary hotel booking technology.
FBOs with the Signature SelectT badge will also offer Signature Status®, the customer rewards program that provides valuable FBO benefits for loyalty to the Signature network. The program incorporates additional benefits offered by sister BBA Aviation plc companies, Dallas Airmotive and Ontic®, for engine maintenance, repair and overhaul (“MRO”) services.
Melissa Singer, Director of Brand Extension added, “This is a significant opportunity for an independent FBO to leverage the quality of their local brand and extend their global reach. The power of the Signature network, our training and technology, network loyalty program and our global sales and marketing team will all be deployed to assist Signature SelectT members to grow their businesses.”
