Weston Aviation officially opened its new FBO at Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield in the UK late last week. This brings the company’s portfolio of UK business aviation centers to four, making Weston the second-largest independent UK FBO chain.
A 65,000-sq-ft business aviation terminal, ramp and hangar complex is being built at the UK’s Leeds Bradford International Airport in Yorkshire. The $13 million investment is being shared by the airport and current FBO and charter firm Multiflight. In addition to providing handling for business aircraft, Multiflight also intends to offer extensive line maintenance.
On May 1, Signature Flight Support opened the first purpose-built business aviation center at Robin Hood Airport in Doncaster/Sheffield, UK. The airport is a former military airfield, RAF Finningley. Signature Flight Support Doncaster is the company’s 20th European FBO. In addition to traditional FBO services, the facility will offer customs, immigration and Special Branch assistance, plus slot acquisition.
