June 22, 2017
New aviation card brings more rewards, expanded acceptance and improved credit terms to users
Irving, TX – EPIC Fuels and Signature Flight Support, a BBA Aviation company, announced that the new Signature Flight Support Multi Service Aviation co-branded cards are now shipping to flight departments, charter operations, aircraft owners and operators across North America. The new card is accepted at more than 8,000 locations worldwide, including all Signature facilities in the U.S. and Canada, all EPIC and UVair FBO Network branded locations and anywhere the U.S. Bank Multi Service Aviation Card is accepted.
“It is fantastic working collaboratively with EPIC Fuels on the design, development and rollout of the new Signature Aviation Cards,” said Geoff Heck, Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing at Signature Flight Support. “Our customers have been eagerly anticipating its arrival and are excited about the convenience, benefits and rewards that come with a Signature Aviation Card.”
Signature has trained the front desk staff at all 132 Signature Flight locations, on the card features and functions and preparing them to look and ask for the new card. Emblazoned with Signature’s logo and set against a background of green, blue and white, the new card comes with generous rewards for cardholders.
For example, double Signature TailWins® points can be earned with every Signature Aviation Card purchase within the Signature Flight Support network and may be combined with other Signature TailWins® promotions to earn even more points. Customers who use the card outside of the Signature Flight Support network earn one point per gallon for fuel purchases only.
In addition, Signature will award a special bonus of 5,000 Signature TailWins® Rewards points after the cardholder completes five (5) transactions on the new card at participating Signature locations from June 1, 2017 through October 31, 2017. Signature TailWins® points can be redeemed for cash cards or brand-name gift cards.
“It has been a great experience working together with Signature to develop the new card,” said Connie Pierpoint, Vice President – Client Services at EPIC Fuels. “Both organizations strive to deliver the best for the customer. Having that shared ethos helped to focus our efforts on delivering a superb aviation card that is flexible, rewarding and accepted at even more locations.”
EPIC reports that applicants of the card have found the expanded acceptance network and improved terms and credit lines from EPIC very attractive. Also favored is the fact that the card can be tailored to aviation department requirements, including assigning cards to either pilots or airplane tail numbers. Applications for the new cards are available from any Signature FBO, or apply online at www.SignatureFlight.com
