Signature Aviation closes acquisition of Meridian


San Marino 728x90 SanSignature Aviation, a private aviation terminal operator, has acquired Meridian, an award-winning private aviation company with bases in Teterboro, NJ (TEB) and Hayward, CA (HWD). This transaction will result in:

  • More opportunities to invest in the field and promote aviation services.
  • An expanded network of FBO and hangar locations.
  • A strengthened commitment to provide an exceptional customer experience.
  • More opportunities for team members of both companies.

“We’re excited to welcome Meridian into the Signature family given our shared mission to operate safely and provide excellent customer service and a great team member experience,” said Tony Lefebvre, CEO of Signature Aviation. “Meridian has a phenomenal history of exceptional service that we look forward to preserving and leveraging across our network.”

“We embarked on this journey having a strong sense of which company would best build on the incredible legacy we’ve created, delivering award-winning service to our customers and treating our team members like family,” said Ken Forester, CEO of Meridian. “Signature is best positioned to do just that through their great network, providing even more services to our customers and opportunities to our people.”

The transaction was completed on January 1, 2024, and Meridian’s TEB and HWD bases joined Signature’s global network of more than 200 locations in 27 countries across five continents. Over the coming months, both teams will be working on a transition that includes incorporating best practices from both companies, enhancing site plans, updating branding and integrating Meridian’s team members into Signature’s family.
