Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE) recently announced plans to install two new features to boost trade incentives and enhance its own commercial edge as one the nation’s top general aviation airports, including a first-time achievement.
As the first general aviation airport in the nation to receive the feature, FXE was chosen by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency (CBP) to acquire the first Global Entry kiosk, enabling pre-approved and low-risk international travelers expedited passage into the U.S., avoiding long wait times to clear customs.
FXE airport’s upgrades also feature authorization by the Department of Homeland Security as an entry and departure point for travel to and from Cuba —an unprecedented feat in FXE and aviation history. As well as clearing the way for safe, uncomplicated travel, the upgrades provide enhanced opportunities for economic growth, attractive to prospective airport tenants and nearby commercial enterprises in Fort Lauderdale.
The brand-new Global Entry kiosk is expected to enhance local and regional business as the nation adjusts to fewer restrictions on travel and trade to the island nation of Cuba with FXE’s support.
Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport handles approximately 160,000 operations annually, housing over 900 aircraft and 24-hour air traffic control tower, security and emergency services.
