Hector International Airport in Fargo, N.D., (FAR) has broken ground on a new U.S. Customs office. The new facility is being built on the North general aviation ramp between two of Fargo Jet Center’s main hangars.
“We are committed to a high level of service for our visiting international flights and a part of that service is the facilities we offer,” says Shawn Dobberstein, Executive Director of Hector International Airport. “Building the new U.S. Customs office next to Fargo Jet Center was a strategic move to give international flights access to both services in one location.”
The new 3,603 square-foot facility was designed using US Customs guidelines and will be equipped with the latest technology for expediting US Customs clearances, according to airport officials. FAR is a Landing Rights Port of Entry with services available 24/7.
“We have a great working relationship with our airport authority and for more than a decade, we have worked together to promote Fargo as a preferred location for both clearing U.S. Customs and FBO services. Our international business has grown significantly over that time,” says FJC Vice President of marketing Darren Hall. “Co-locating the US Customs office on our ramp improves the experience for our international passengers and crews when stopping in Fargo.”
