Signature Flight Support Opens Dedicated Sports Terminal

In an effort to help the city attract elite sporting events and better service Miami’s own professional teams, Signature Flight Support, a fixed based operator (FBO) at Miami International Airport (KMIA), is proud to announce the grand opening of its brand new 3,500 sq. ft. Sports Charter Terminal and accompanying 2,500 sq. ft. ground services equipment building.

The new facility will enable a higher volume of home and visiting professional and collegiate sports teams traveling to and from the Miami area to access MIA via chartered flights.

Carty Architecture began the design and development of the new Sports Charter Terminal almost two years ago in August of 2016, and construction by State Contracting & Engineering Corp. (SCEC) commenced one year later.

The Signature Flight Support main FBO terminal was built by SCEC in 2000 and provides fuel, hangar space, handling and concierge services for all general aviation traffic entering MIA. Since 2000, the FBO has received technical upgrades in addition to several renovations to make it a LEED certified Silver facility.

In recent years, Signature Flight Support Miami has played a prominent role on the global sports stage through its servicing of the FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour, the sending-off of the U.S. men’s national soccer team to the 2014 Brazil World Cup and the hosting of the arrivals of UEFA Champion football clubs for the International Champions Cup. The Sports Terminal will likely contribute to even more of such opportunities in the future.

The Miami International Airport (KMIA), along with its general aviation airports, is the leading economic engine for Miami-Dade County and the state of Florida, generating business revenue of $33.7 billion annually, and welcoming 70 percent of visitors to the Florida area.
