Hector International Airport in Fargo, N.D. (KFAR), has broken ground on a New U.S. Customs office designed to improve the experience for international arrivals. The new facility is being constructed 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,” said 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 is has been designed using U.S. Customs guidelines and will be equipped with the latest technology for expediting U.S. Customs clearances. KFAR 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,” said 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."
