A new United States Customs and Border Protection Federal Inspection Station opened at the Capital Region International Airport in Lansing, Mich, May 26.
The new $4.3 million, 17,500-square-foot facility is located at the east end of the main terminal.
The Capital Region International Airport is the only international airport in Michigan outside Detroit with a full-time U.S. Customs Federal Inspection Station.
The airport opened Port Lansing in June 2008 as an official international port of entry into the country with an interim facility for U.S. Customs and Border Protection at the west end of the airport terminal building to help process international general and corporate aviation passengers and airfreight.
Construction of the new U.S. Customs facility was completed ahead of schedule and on budget. In recent years, the Capital Region International Airport has been the site of nearly $20 million in airport improvement projects that included extending the main airport runway to 8,500 feet.
