But Will Pilots Be Served Wine And Truffles?
Signature Flight Support officially
broke ground on its new Toulon, France, facility during a March 25
on site ceremony. The Orlando, Florida-based company took over
flight support operations at the Toulon-Hyeres Airport (TLN/LFTH)

terminal with exclusive use of the airport's VIP lounge.
Construction on the new purpose-built 2,410-square-foot facility is
expected to be complete in the third quarter of 2004.
"We have a dedicated team in place who are already achieving the
high service standards Signature demands of its facilities. We look
forward to completion of the new facility and to bringing Signature
service and capabilities to business aviation customers flying in
and out of Provence," said David Best, Signature's managing

group chief executive of BBA Aviation Services, Albert Bessudo,
