Signature Flight Support and Epic Fuels launch payment card

Signature Flight Support and Epic Fuels have launched new Signature Flight Support Multi Service Aviation co-branded cards that are to be shipped 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 at all Signature facilities in the USA and Canada, all Epic and UVair FBO network-branded locations, and anywhere the US Bank Multi Service Aviation Card is accepted.

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.

Geoff Heck, senior vice president sales and marketing at Signature Flight Support, said, “It is fantastic working collaboratively with Epic Fuels on the design, development and roll-out of the new Signature Aviation Cards.

“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 will also award a bonus of 5,000 Signature TailWins rewards points after the cardholder completes five transactions on the new card at participating Signature locations from until October 31. Signature TailWins points can be redeemed for cash cards or brand-name gift cards.

Connie Pierpoint, vice president for client services at Epic Fuels, added, “It has been a great experience working together with Signature to develop the new card. 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.”
