Signature Flight Support agreed last month to purchase the FBO component of Metro Flight Services at Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW).

Once the acquisition is complete, the FBOs will be combined into one Signature Flight Support location, leaving the BBA Aviation subsidiary the lone general aviation services provider on the field, while ASIG will continue to handle the airline traffic.
