A division of the global FBO network Signature Flight Support, Signature ELITE Class is expanding the availability of its commercial airline passenger transfer services through the acquisition of Caribbean based aviation services provider IAM Jet Centre. Signature ELITE Class provides passenger transfer services for airline passengers via dedicated infrastructure at major international airports throughout North America and Europe, allowing travellers to bypass the main commercial terminal.
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 Fixed Base Operator locations establishes Signature ELITE Class as the world’s largest provider of VIP airside transfer services for passengers of commercial flights.
Signature ELITE Class’s existing network of locations include London Gatwick and London Luton. In the Caribbean, Antigua’s V.C. Bird International Airport will be complemented by IAM’s services at Grantley Adams International Airport in Barbados, Maurice Bishop International Airport in Grenada and Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport in the British Virgin Islands. Plans are also afoot to expand the Signature ELITE Class programme at Hewanorra International Airport in Saint Lucia and the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, Jamaica in 2020.
“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 traveller transfer programmes,” said Paige Tureville, business director, Signature ELITE Class. “IAM’s pioneering endeavours 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,” she continued.
The Signature ELITE Class VIP programme allows passengers to bypass the traditional airport terminal, providing transfers to arriving and departing commercial airline passengers through private-use lounges and business aviation facilities. Offering a convenient and discrete service it also offers dedicated security, customs and immigration, as well as baggage check-in services.
