The following terms and conditions govern the use of Signature ELITE Class services ("Signature ELITE Class") at selected Signature Flight Support terminals at airports within Europe (in these terms and conditions a “Terminal” will refer to the specific Signature Flight Support terminal at the airport set out in a passenger’s booking) (the “Terms and Conditions”). Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully before you make a booking with us. You need to agree to these Terms and Conditions before making a booking. If you do not agree with these Terms and Conditions, please do not make a booking with us. 

Signature ELITE Class services are provided by either Signature Flight Support UK Regions Limited (registered address 4th Floor, 115 George Street, Edinburgh EH2 4JN and registered company number SC169996), or Signature Flight Support London Luton Limited (registered address Voyager House, 142 Prospect Way, Luton, Bedfordshire LU2 9QH and registered company number 02288275).  When you are booking Signature ELITE Class services for Gatwick Airport, your contract will be with Signature Flight Support UK Regions Limited, when you are booking Signature ELITE Class services for Luton Airport, your contract will be with Signature Flight Support London Luton Limited.

Unless otherwise confirmed when making a booking with us, “Signature Flight Support”, "we", "our" and "us" are references to Signature Flight Support UK Regions Limited or Signature Flight Support London Luton Limited (to be determined by reference to which airport you are booking Signature ELITE Class services for). "You" and "your" are references to the individual/company who makes a booking for Signature ELITE Class.

Please note that these Terms and Conditions may be amended from time to time. You are reminded that each time you make a booking with us, you should re-familiarise yourself with these Terms and Conditions, including any changes that have been made, before making a booking with us. These Terms and Conditions are current as at September 2020 and they replace any previous version you may have seen or been given.  

1. USE OF SIGNATURE ELITE CLASS

1.1. The Signature ELITE Class service includes: 

1.1.1. use of Signature ELITE Class lounges in connection with arriving, departing or connecting flights at the relevant Terminal (as specified in a passenger’s booking);
1.1.2. use of dedicated security facilities; and
1.1.3. private vehicle transfer from private Terminal to aircraft (if departing), and from aircraft to private Terminal (if arriving).

1.2. Signature ELITE Class provides the above services for all named passengers on a booking for a single departing or arriving flight at the relevant Terminal stated in the booking only. 

1.3. Signature ELITE Class passengers arriving on a commercial flight and connecting to additional commercial flights will be charged the full additional Signature ELITE Class service charge(s) on a per flight basis (as confirmed when booking with us).

1.4. Signature ELITE Class service entitles passengers to:

1.4.1. a maximum of 3 hours in the lounge at London Gatwick for long haul flights and 2 hours at London Gatwick  for short haul flights; and
1.4.2. a maximum of 2 hours at London Luton for long haul flights and 2 hours at London Luton for short haul flights.

(long haul is defined as a flight scheduled to take 4 hours or longer, short haul is defined as a flight scheduled to take less than 4 hours).  

For passengers who are connecting or transferring flights through a Terminal, if layover time unexpectantly exceeds the time a passenger is permitted to access the Signature Elite Class lounge (whether this is on the basis that it exceeds the permitted time periods set out under paragraphs 1.4.1 and 1.4.2 above, or where relevant, any longer pre-agreed duration as detailed on a booking) due to flight delays, Signature Flight Support may extend the allocated time in the lounge, subject to availability, at Signature Flight Support’s sole discretion.

1.5. Children under eighteen (18) years of age may not use the Signature ELITE Class service unaccompanied.

1.6. The standard operating times of Signature ELITE Class is 05h00 – 23h00 (local time). Use of Signature ELITE Class outside of these hours may be available subject to prior agreement with Signature Flight Support (in its absolute discretion) and at rates to be agreed (you are required to contact Signature Flight Support prior to making your booking should you wish to enquire as to availability and costs for use of Signature ELITE Class outside of these hours).

1.7. Where applicable at certain Terminals, the entrance to the Signature ELITE Class area and lounges is located before security ("Landside"). Flights departing from or arriving at other terminals at the relevant airport will be transferred to and from the Signature ELITE Class lounge by private vehicle. 

1.8. Airlines may charge excess luggage fees to passengers wishing to check in more bags than their allocated maximum allowance. If a passenger wishes to check in more bags than their allowance, they must arrange this with their airline and pay any excess luggage charges directly to their airline prior to departure. For information on luggage restrictions applicable to the passenger’s airline, please contact the airline direct. Signature Flight Support accepts no liability for passengers who have excess luggage and have not arranged for this with their airline in advance.

1.9. The Signature ELITE Class fee includes a fee for processing a maximum of ten (10) pieces of hold luggage per passenger. Signature Flight Support will liaise with the passenger’s airline to screen, transport, check-in and label the passenger’s luggage for them. The passenger’s airline may need to speak with the passenger directly to ask security questions during this process. If a passenger wishes for Signature Flight Support to process more than ten (10) items of hold luggage per passenger, this shall incur an additional charge of a one-off fee of £50 (excluding VAT). Please note that a passenger’s airline luggage allowance may vary from the number shown here.

2. CUSTOMER RESPONSIBILITIES

2.1. All passengers and luggage must arrive at the relevant Terminal prior to the time specified by the relevant airline but in any event no less than 90 minutes prior to their scheduled flight time for passengers with checked luggage and 60 minutes prior to their scheduled flight time  for carry on only. Passengers who are connecting or transferring must have the following minimum connection or transferring times:

• Gatwick Airport – 90 minutes where a passenger has checked luggage and 60 minutes if a passenger has carry on only; and
• Luton Airport – 60 minutes in all cases.

2.2. Late arrival may result in the airline refusing to accept passengers and/or luggage for the flight. In such circumstances, Signature Flight Support will not be held responsible for a passenger’s failure to board their flight (including where an airline refuses to allow a passenger to board their flight), and any fees paid for Signature ELITE Class  (including additional fees) will not be refunded. 

2.3. Passengers must comply with airline terms and conditions (including any luggage restrictions) at all times.

2.4. All passengers are responsible for checking-in to their flights directly with the relevant airline prior to their arrival at the lounge, and must present their boarding pass and any relevant Visas or other required travel documentation to Signature Flight Support staff upon arrival in the lounge. For the avoidance of doubt, Signature Flight Support is not able to provide passenger check-in services to passengers and will not be held responsible for passengers missing their flight as a result of failure by passengers to check-in prior to their arrival at the lounge. 

2.5. Signature Flight Support will not intervene in any dispute between an airline and passengers. 

2.6. Passengers using Signature ELITE Class service are encouraged to carry appropriate travel insurance.

2.7. When using Signature ELITE Class service, passengers must comply with any direction or instruction given by any Signature Flight Support officers, personnel or other security personnel and all applicable safety, security, customs and immigration regulations imposed on passengers. The security sections of the websites of the relevant airports should be checked by passengers prior to each arrival or departure for the latest information. 

2.8. Acceptance of these Terms and Conditions by you constitutes consent for Signature Flight Support to charge the pre-authorised credit or debit card provided by you on the basis described in paragraph ‎6.5 of these Terms and Conditions after departure for: (i) any damage to the Signature ELITE Class lounge or vehicles caused by any travelling passengers and/or guests named on your booking;  and/or (ii) for any items which are wrongfully removed from the Signature ELITE Class lounge by any travelling passengers and/or guests named on your booking. 

2.9. Each passenger is responsible for monitoring airline schedules and any potential changes to flight times prior to their arrival at the relevant Signature ELITE Class lounge. Passengers are responsible for ensuring that they meet the appropriate passport, visa and health requirements and Signature Flight Support accepts no responsibility in this respect.

2.10. In the event that parking facilities are available at a Terminal, passengers may be permitted to park their car for the duration of their journey for a fee. If you would like to add parking onto your booking, you must first confirm pricing and availability with Signature Flight Support staff at the relevant Terminal at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to the time of travel. The availability of parking facilities cannot be guaranteed and are always subject to availability. You must provide accurate information to Signature Flight Support regarding any vehicles which will arrive at and/or depart from the Terminal and must register each vehicle with Signature Flight Support at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to the time of travel. If any vehicles arrive at the Terminal which have not been properly registered when the booking is made, an additional fee of up to £200.00 (excluding VAT) may be charged on top of the normal parking fee for each additional vehicle to cover our reasonably incurred administrative and operational costs arising from your failure to provide correct and full information. 

2.11. Passengers are responsible for bringing their own child seat if required, and Signature Flight Support do not provide these.

3. NON-TRAVELLING GUESTS

3.1. Each group of travelling passengers may be permitted to have a maximum of two (2) non-travelling guests per group who may access the Signature ELITE Class service, subject to any restrictions at the relevant location.  Any guests must carry photo identification with them at all times and must arrive no earlier than 15 minutes prior to the scheduled arrival or departure time of the travelling passenger group and must vacate the Signature ELITE Class area once the travelling passengers have left.  

3.2. Names of any guests must be supplied at the time of booking otherwise they will not be permitted access to the Signature ELITE Class area.

3.3. Any guests must remain Landside at all times and will not be permitted to access any airside area nor shall they be allowed to escort the travelling passengers to the aircraft.

3.4. Signature Flight Support reserves the right to ask any non-travelling guests for photo identification at any time. 

4. BEHAVIOUR AND CONDUCT 

4.1. Signature ELITE Class services, Terminals, and lounge areas must not be used for any unlawful purpose whatsoever (including, without limitation, in contravention of applicable anti-bribery and corruption laws or regulations – including the UK Bribery Act 2010 and Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977 - or any sanctions imposed by any regulatory authority worldwide) or in a manner which infringes the rights (or inhibits the peaceful use and enjoyment of Signature ELITE Class) of any other passenger and/or their guests.

4.2. In order to preserve the privacy and confidentiality of passengers, all users of Signature ELITE Class (both passengers and guests) must conduct themselves in an appropriate, respectful and sensible manner and must not approach any other passengers or guests or disclose the presence of such passengers or guests to any other person or third party.

4.3. Signature Flight Support has a duty to report any suspicious behaviour of passengers and/or their guests to the appropriate authorities during their use of Signature ELITE Class, their time at the Terminal and/or prior to flying. 

4.4. Passengers and their guests must drink alcohol responsibly when using Signature ELITE Class and accessing the Terminal. Signature Flight Support does not accept responsibility or liability for passengers and/or their guests who drink alcohol excessively. Signature Flight Support reserves the right to limit alcohol consumption/refuse to serve a passenger when deemed necessary, including, for example, to ensure the safety and wellbeing of other passengers, guests and/or staff. Furthermore, in the event any passenger and/or guest is or becomes intoxicated, Signature Flight Support may refuse them use of facilities at the Terminal and access to the lounges. It is the responsibility of each passenger to ensure that they are fit for their flight following consumption of food and alcohol while using Signature ELITE Class and that they meet the requirements of the relevant airline for their flight. Signature Flight Support accepts no responsibility or liability for passengers who are denied boarding and do not meet the relevant airlines’ requirements for flying.

4.5. For the avoidance of doubt, only food and drink supplied by Signature Flight Support at Signature ELITE Class lounges may be consumed by passengers and guests in the Signature ELITE Class lounges.

4.6. Smoking (including smoking e-cigarettes) by passengers and their guests is only permitted in designated smoking areas. In the event passengers and/or their guests do not comply with this paragraph, Signature Flight Support may refuse them use of Signature ELITE Class and access to the Signature ELITE Class lounges.

Signature Flight Support reserves the right to remove individuals from the Signature ELITE Class lounges and/or refuse to provide any additional services in the event of any inappropriate and/or unlawful conduct (to be determined at Signature Flight Support’s sole discretion, acting reasonably). Where a passenger is removed from the Signature ELITE Class lounge for inappropriate and/or unlawful conduct, any fees paid to Signature Flight Support will not be refunded. 

5. ADDITIONAL SERVICES

5.1. Additional services may be arranged (always subject to availability) through Signature Flight Support, prior to departure or arrival. These may include: 

5.1.1. chauffeur service booked by Signature Flight Support on the passengers’ behalf with a chauffeur service of Signature Flight Support’s choice or by request at the time of booking such service, a preferred chauffeur service of your choice;
5.1.2. VAT reclaim (see paragraph 5.4, below); 
5.1.3. valet parking (upon availability); and 
5.1.4. any other additional services upon request,

(together "Additional Services" and each an "Additional Service"). 

Please note that some of the Additional Services detailed above may be provided by third parties and will be subject to the relevant third party’s own terms and conditions (i.e. they will be provided under a separate contract between you and the relevant third party). When making a booking for Additional Services, Signature Flight Support will confirm at the time of booking whether the relevant Additional Services are being provided by a third party under their own terms and conditions. In circumstances where a customer instructs Signature Flight Support to book Additional Services on their behalf with a third party, this will be deemed as acceptance of the relevant third party terms and conditions, and Signature Flight Support therefore accepts no liability for any Additional Services provided by that third party.

5.2. Any Additional Services are subject to availability at the relevant Terminal at the required time and are not included in the fees for using Signature ELITE Class and additional fees will be due in respect of any Additional Services which are booked. 

5.3. Payment for any Additional Services to be provided by Signature Flight Support will be taken from the pre-authorised credit or debit card provided by you and acceptance of these Terms and Conditions constitutes consent for Signature Flight Support to so charge the pre-authorised credit or debit card for the Additional Services, unless Signature Flight Support is notified in advance that an alternative accepted method of payment is preferred. 

5.4. You must notify Signature Flight Support at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to a scheduled flight time if passengers intend to use a VAT refund service (if applicable at the relevant airport). In such event, the passengers must arrive at the Terminal at least two (2) hours prior to their scheduled flight departure time if they have a reasonable number of VAT claims to make prior to departure, in order for their VAT claims to be processed in time. Signature Flight Support recommends that passengers arrive at the Terminal earlier if they have a large number of claims (more than 5 claims), and/or their claims are of a complex nature. In this event, the passenger should contact Signature Flight Support to discuss these arrangements. Passengers must also be properly prepared for using the VAT refund service to minimise any delays in using such service (this will include having all relevant paperwork available for review). For the avoidance of doubt, subject to Signature Flight Support providing the services with reasonable skill and care, Signature Flight Support will not be liable for any VAT refunds that the passenger fails to process through the VAT refund service in time.

6. BOOKING PROCESS

6.1. All named passengers on a booking must have a valid flight reservation before making a Signature ELITE Class booking request.

All payments contemplated by these Terms and Conditions (including, without limitation, Additional Services to be provided by Signature Flight Support, additional passengers, cancellation and administration fees) will be charged to the debit or credit card appearing on the card authorisation form and acceptance of these Terms and Conditions by you constitutes consent  for Signature Flight Support to so charge the pre authorised credit or debit card.

Payment for Signature ELITE Class services in cash is not accepted by Signature Flight Support. 

6.6. Signature Flight Support is not obliged to accept any booking. A booking request submitted in accordance with paragraph ‎6.3  constitutes an offer by or on behalf of you for Signature ELITE Class services.

6.8. Signature ELITE Class bookings may be made by third parties acting as agent for a passenger, in which case the booking must be made in the name of the passenger (i.e. as if it were the passenger making the booking direct), which must be specified on the online booking form, and on confirmation of a booking a binding contract is formed with the named passenger on these Terms and Conditions and a credit or debit card pre-authorisation form must be submitted to Signature Flight Support in relation to the booking in accordance with paragraph 6.6.

6.9. Except for state bookings, passengers acknowledge they may be required to share the Signature ELITE Class lounge and security lanes with other passengers.

7.5. In the event a booking is cancelled by Signature Flight Support, Signature Flight Support will endeavour to notify you as soon as reasonably practicable of such cancellation and a full refund of any payments made in connection with the cancelled booking will be provided (provided that the reason for such cancellation is not due to the actions or omissions of you, any passenger or any guest named on your booking).

Your right to cancel a booking

8.1. Where travelling passengers arrive at a Signature ELITE Class lounge with additional passengers and/or guests who have not been added to an existing booking, those additional passengers may be refused access to the Signature ELITE Class service at Signature Flight Support’s sole discretion. Signature Flight Support may, at its sole discretion, permit such additional passengers to be added to an existing booking at the standard service cost plus a surcharge of £50.00 (excluding VAT) per additional passenger (such costs will be charged to the debit or credit card appearing on the card authorisation form provided under paragraph 6.6 above). 

8.2. Where the scheduled flight departure or arrival at the relevant airport is delayed by no fault of the passenger, changes (i.e. dates and times) may be made to the booking without incurring a charge.
