Signature Aviation held a grand-opening celebration for its newly completed FBO at Scotland’s Edinburgh late last week. The facility, which took two years to build, features a 5,575-sq-ft (518-sq-m) terminal with discrete entrances for passengers and crew. Amenities include VIP suites, conference room, coffee bar, business center, crew lounge, and 48-space secure vehicle parking lot.
The location has nearly 70,000 sq ft (6,497 sq m) of dedicated ramp, which allows it to handle any size aircraft up to an Airbus A330. It is fully self-sufficient with its own equipment ranging from a pair of fuel trucks to airstairs, tugs, ground power units, and belt loaders.
Signature has invested substantially in the FBO and its security screening equipment. Installation of a CT3 X-ray machine upgrade is planned for early 2024. The company is in negotiations with airlines to introduce its Elite Class product there, which will allow commercial passengers to use the facility for arriving and departing flights.
“We are looking forward to a successful partnership with Edinburgh Airport as we grow our business in Scotland and the UK,” said John-Angus Smith, Signature’s managing director for EMEA.
