A cargo loader beneath a Moroccan Boeing 767 caught fire November 5 shortly after the aircraft’s arrival at Montreal Pierre Trudeau International Airport last week. Ground crews had just begun unloading passenger bags when a conveyor belt pushed against the aircraft’s cargo door overheated, igniting the blaze. Two of the 250 passengers aboard were treated for smoke inhalation while five others were transported to hospital with varying injuries. A phone camera video recorded some of the efforts to evacuate passengers.

The acquisition is subject to “customary closing conditions” and expected to be completed during the third quarter, Signature said. Under the agreement, Starlink Aviation will retain full ownership and continue to operate the real estate and aircraft management, aircraft maintenance, corporate shuttle and aircraft charter services. For the past two years, Starlink Aviation has been a Signature network location.
