Signature Flight Support agreed last month to purchase the FBO component of Metro Flight Services at Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW). Metro Flight was one of two FBOs at the airport, the other being owned by Signature sister company ASIG, which also provides the airline fueling and ground handling at DTW. Once the acquisition is complete, the FBOs will be combined into one Signature Flight Support location, leaving the BBA Aviation subsidiary the lone general aviation services provider on the field, while ASIG will continue to handle the airline traffic.
