BBA Aviation subsidiary Signature Flight Support’s new FBO at Newark International Airport (EWR) opened last month, after an 18-month construction project. The $11 million facility occupies approximately 11 acres at the airport. It features a 39,000-sq-ft hangar and an 11,200-sq-ft terminal serving as the prototype for Signature’s newly designed interior traffic flow pattern. Built to Leed Gold standard, the terminal provides three lounges, including a separate VIP area.
“We are thrilled to be opening a new location for Signature in Newark,” said Signature Flight Support president and CEO Maria Sastre, noting the company has had a presence on the airport for the last 45 years. EWR is one of four Signature FBOs in the New York area–along with White Plains, Teterboro and Morristown–that will be preparing for the onslaught of aviation traffic at the beginning of February for the Super Bowl.
