August 13, 2019 By Wings Staff
Signature Flight Support began operations in the newly opened Business & General Aviation Terminal at the Milan-Malpensa Airport (MXP), the largest international airport in the Milan metropolitan area in northern Italy. Signature’s crew and passenger lounge is housed within a newly constructed 1,400-square-foot facility, which represents the first purpose-built structure for business aviation at the airport.
The new Business & General Aviation Terminal aims to improve services offered to VIP travelers by providing exclusive infrastructure to accommodate private aircraft, including a dedicated ramp space and additional car parking. Signature explains the facility is the culmination of an 18-month construction effort to create a permanent home for business aircraft at Malpensa, the primary commercial service airport for Milan.
“The expansion of Signature’s presence at the Milan-Malpensa Airport is part of our strategy to provide comprehensive flight support solutions to business aircraft operators in Italy,” said John-Angus Smith, managing director EMEA. “The new Business & General Aviation Terminal at Malpensa comprehensively upgrades the experience of private aviation crews and passengers visiting the airport, and serves as an elegant gateway to Milan and the rest of Northern Italy.”
Signature Flight Support holds the world’s largest Fixed Base Operation (FBO) network for B&GA users with around 200 locations covering destinations in North America, Europe, South America, Caribbean, Africa and Asia.
