Signature Flight Support, a BBA Aviation company, announced the opening of its newly constructed FBO at Burke Lakefront Airport (BKL) adjacent to its existing facility which will be converted to tenant offices.
Signature BKL’s campus spans four acres with a 6,000 sq. ft. executive FBO terminal and an 18,750 sq. ft. hangar featuring high efficiency lighting. The full-service FBO is a single story building with areas for flight planning, aircraft catering and offices. Customer amenities include a high-end lobby area, executive conference room, bistro and coffee bar, pilots’ lounge and snooze rooms. Secured parking for customer vehicles with easy access to the FBO rounds out the facility’s amenities.
Signature’s new Cleveland Burke Lakefront FBO Terminal compliments the fine tradition of distinctive commercial architecture that evolved in Cleveland during the turn of the last century and was characterized by the provision of lighter and more open structures. Some of the features of the new Signature FBO are the building materials which are both durable and aesthetic and recall Cleveland’s history as an industrial center. The illuminated central vehicular drop-off canopy and lobby are designed with an exposed metal framework reminiscent of the iconic Cleveland steel bridges.
“This new FBO and hangar facilities demonstrate Signature Flight Support’s commitment to provide world-class service at Burke Lakefront Airport,” stated Maria Sastre, President and Chief Operating Officer of Signature Flight Support. “We are immensely proud to become part of the community and look forward to being a long-term partner of the airport.”
“Burke Lakefront Airport is an important component of the Cleveland Airport System,” said Interim Airport Director Fred Szabo. “We’re pleased that Signature has shown their commitment and confidence in Burke and helped us raise the level of service to our corporate customers.”
Construction was completed in time to welcome Republican National Convention attendees to Cleveland.
