Miami Executive Aviation at Opa Locka Executive Airport (OPF) is expanding the hours that U.S. Customs operates on the field. Previously only available until 9 p.m., the airport can now accept international aircraft arrivals until midnight year round.
“After 13 years in business, we’re very excited to have the led the way once again to provide both our customers, as well as other users of the airport, with better service through these expanded hours,” said Fabio Alexander, CEO of Miami Executive Aviation and Chief Marketing Officer of Ross Aviation. “This change is a fantastic benefit to aircraft that were previously forced to use larger commercial airports when arriving internationally because of the time restriction and we’re proud to have been a part of this positive change.”
The company had previously worked closely with local officials for nearly two years, starting in 1996, to expand the hours of operation of U.S. Customs and the hours were finally expanded for the first time in 1998. In lobbying for expanding the hours a second time, the company this time reached out to other businesses at the airport in order to build a coalition. “We were happy to work with fellow concerned businesses at the airport to make this change happen and we’re hoping to expand the hours even further in the future,” added Alexander.
Located at the Opa-Locka Executive Airport since 1996, the company offers a 24-hour flight service operation, aviation fuels, aircraft sales, 125,000 feet of corporate hangar space, including a recent 86,000 hangar capable of holding 3 BBJ sized aircraft, office leasing and parts. Miami Executive Aviation also offers specialized concierge services and United States Customs arrival assistance. The company is part of Ross Aviation, a network of 14 FBOs located throughout the United States.
