Oct 22, 2019
Signature ELITE Class, a division of worldwide FBO network Signature Flight Support, is significantly expanding the availability of its commercial airline passenger transfer services through the acquisition of Caribbean based aviation services provider IAM Jet Centre. The agreement to assume control of IAM’s Trident Suite and St. George’s Suite products, part of Signature’s purchase of the company’s five private aviation Fixed Base Operator locations, firmly establishes Signature ELITE Class as the world’s largest provider of VIP airside transfer services for passengers of commercial flights.
Existing Signature ELITE Class locations at London-Gatwick Airport, London-Luton Airport, and Antigua’s V.C. Bird Int’l Airport will be supplemented by IAM’s services at Grantley Adams Int’l Airport in Barbados, Maurice Bishop Int’l Airport in Grenada, and Terrance B. Lettsome Int’l Airport in the British Virgin Islands. The Signature ELITE Class program will also grow to the Hewanorra Int’l Airport in Saint Lucia and the Sangster Int’l Airport in Montego Bay, Jamaica in 2020.
The Signature ELITE Class VIP program bypasses the traditional airport terminal, providing frictionless transfers to arriving and departing commercial airline passengers through private-use lounges and business aviation facilities. The service offers dedicated security, customs and immigration, baggage check-in, and discrete, effortless car transfers to and from the lounge, direct to the aircraft.
“The addition of four IAM Jet Centre locations to our growing Signature ELITE Class network is representative of our commitment to the growth of our commercial airline traveler transfer programs,” expressed Paige Turbeville, Business Director, Signature ELITE Class. “IAM’s pioneering endeavors in the field of VIP airline services has established the model for the industry, and we look forward to accelerating our expansion plans for ELITE Class with IAM’s expertise.”
