Florida’s Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE), home to approximately 280 business jets, saw the opening today of its new U.S. customs inspection station. Located at the east end of Taxiway G on the airside and at 5301 East Perimeter Road by land, the expanded $5.6 million facility will be adaptable to future workloads, technologies and operational needs, according to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency.
“The City of Fort Lauderdale has been a tremendous partner by providing a facility with style and functionality, that is one of the best equipped facilities in the country,” said CBP port director Jorge Roig. “We look forward to building on our partnership to better serve our community.”
Along with the new 7,900-sq-ft location comes increased hours of operation. It will be open three hours later than previously, from 8 a.m. until midnight daily, and CBP staff there can be reached at (954) 491-5647 or (954) 771-5160.
