Signature Opens Second Berlin FBO at Tegel

Signature Flight Support (Booth 364) has opened a satellite base at Berlin Tegel Airport. The new facility gives operators an alternative to the company’s existing FBO at Berlin Schoenefeld Airport and closer access to the center of the German capital.

“We are very pleased to be able to extend to Signature customers the option of choosing another Signature FBO when visiting the city of Berlin,” said Peter Bouwer, Signature’s director of operations for Europe, the Middle East and Africa. “The business clients at Tegel are primarily involved with the larger international manufacturing companies in the area, but we believe the leisure traveler will also follow suit, using the Signature facilities at this convenient airport.”

Tegel is located on the northwest side of Berlin, while Schoenefeld is on the southeast side of the city. Schoenefeld is to be merged with the new Berlin Brandenburg Airport, which is due to open, after a significant delay, in 2014. At that point, Tegel Airport is to close. Signature also has FBOs in Frankfurt and Munich.
