BBA Aviation plc is a British multinational aviation services company focused on providing services to the Business & General Aviation market. It is headquartered in London, United Kingdom.

BBA Aviation is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the FTSE 250 Index.


BBA Aviation can trace its origins back to a small industrial belting works founded in Scotland in 1879.  Over time, what was known as BBA Group, grew its operations to include a wide range of specialist industrial and automotive products before becoming involved in aviation. In 2006, with the demerger of its materials technology division, Fiberweb, BBA became a focused aviation support and aftermarket services business and was renamed BBA Aviation.  Following the acquisition of Landmark Aviation in 2016 and sale of ASIG in 2017, the company is now primarily focused on supporting the global Business and General Aviation (B&GA) market and has three key businesses: Signature Flight Support; ERO (Engine Repair and Overhaul); and Ontic.


BBA Aviation has around 220 locations on five continents and employs more than 6,700 people. Signature Flight Support is the world's largest fixed base operation (FBO) and line maintenance network for Business & General Aviation (B&GA) users with around 200 locations.
