General aviation facility opens at Dayton
Prior to the $1.5 million infrastructure update, foreign aircraft had to clear Customs and Border Protection at a port of entry other than Dayton. Now all entry services have been brought under one roof.
The new general aviation facility at Dayton International airport allows foreign aircraft and passengers to land without having to first clear customs at other ports of entry.

Dayton International airport in Ohio has opened a new general aviation facility (GAF) onsite. US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) joined the Dayton team for a ribbon cutting ceremony last month.

After a two-year, $1.5 million infrastructure update, the Dayton GAF now welcomes direct arrival aircraft and passengers from countries all over the world. Prior to the creation of this processing centre, foreign aircraft and passengers had to clear CBP at other ports of entry.

“We are very appreciative of the support we've received from our partners throughout the planning and construction of this facility,” says CBP Chicago director of field operations Robert White.

The GAF follows another major public service enhancement at the Dayton port of entry. In August, CBP opened a global entry enrolment centre in Dayton to provide better access to the public.

“This facility provides a secure location for our officers to complete their anti-terrorism mission and to provide all necessary services to the local community and airport authorities,” explains Cleveland area port director Marc Hurteau. “We now have a modernised general aviation facility, a port office and a global entry enrolment centre under one roof.”
