Signature Flight Support added three new FBOs to its network on Friday with acquisition of the FBO 2000 chain and its three Caribbean locations. The purchase includes facilities at V.C. Bird Antigua International Airport, R. Bradshaw International Airport in St. Kitts and Vance W. Amory International Airport in Nevis.

Signature Antigua will provide an executive terminal with passenger lounge and offices, two hangars and extensive ramp parking space, as well as aircraft-to-yacht service. Meanwhile, the St. Kitts and Nevis locations each have offices at their respective airports for passenger handling and coordination services to expedite customs and immigration clearance.

“We are pleased to welcome three new Caribbean leisure and business destinations to our global portfolio with an established reputation for excellent service,” said Signature president and COO Maria Sastre. “We look forward to welcoming the staff at Antigua, St. Kitts and Nevis to the Signature family.”

The newly acquired FBOs join Signature’s other locations in the region at San Juan, Puerto Rico, and St. Maarten. The company also recently signed a licensing agreement with the Turks and Caicos’ Blue Heron Aviation, which is expected to open this fall.
