Signature Flight Support has opened a new $15 million FBO facility at Nashville International Airport, the result of a new 30-year lease from the Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority. It features an 8,000-sq-ft terminal, which will serve both private aviation and sports charter flights. Honoring the city’s rich music history, the interior is furnished with artifacts from musicians and celebrities who have passed through Signature’s previous location at the airport, while the sports charter area pays homage to the city’s professional and collegiate sports teams.
Included in the project was a 25,000-sq-ft hangar, which can accommodate the latest big business jets and brings the facility up to 138,000 sq ft of aircraft storage space. An additional 16,000-sq-ft hangar is planned. Over the next year, the BBA Aviation subsidiary will renovate the FBO’s former 4,000-sq-ft terminal, which will be used as office space for the company and its tenants.
“The new Signature Nashville is one of our shining stars in our global network,” said COO Tony Lefebvre, adding that he believes customers will enjoy the new facility and the staff’s hospitality. “Nashville’s economy is booming, and population growth continues to soar.”
