Stuart brings customs clearance closer to home
Clients flying to Stuart Jet Center in south Florida can now clear US customs at the facility. Previously, visitors have had to travel to Fort Pierce or West Palm Beach to obtain clearance.
Stuart Jet Center is offering its customers 10x (20) AVTRIP Points per gallon from February 11 through the end of April when clearing customs.

US customs have been added at Stuart Jet Center in south Florida by US Customs and Border Protection. “We've been continuously increasing our amenities and services to better support a diverse group of operators,” says president Dan Capen. “Adding a customs facility on the airport field is a major step to accommodating more needs, particularly for international operators looking for reliable, quality FBO services in this region. The addition of customs will be great for the airport, the community and those who visit us.”

The 3,210 sq ft US Customs facility at Witham Field will be the first intermodal clearance facility of its kind in Florida, processing international travellers arriving in Martin County by air and sea. Visitors to and from Stuart will no longer have to travel to Fort Pierce or West Palm Beach for their customs clearance.

To mark the opening, Stuart Jet Center is offering its customers 10x (20) AVTRIP Points per gallon from February 11 through the end of April when clearing customs.

The facility is the second development project benefitting guests to Stuart Jet Center. Recently, the FBO opened two new hangars, each measuring 25,000 sq ft and able to accommodate aircraft up to G650 or Global Express size. The project included an additional 11,000 sq ft of adjoining office and shop space for tenant convenience and lease.

In total, Stuart Jet Center now boasts a 53-acre facility with more than 20 acres of lighted, secure ramp space: 340,000 sq ft of hangar space and a convenient location 1.3 miles north of the PBI presidential TFR zone for easy flying to West Palm Beach. Operators also benefit from full ground handling services, charter and maintenance, avionics sales and services, pilot supplies, gourmet catering, concierge services, courtesy cars and shuttles and the availability of Avfuel Contract Fuel and AVTRIP rewards as an Avfuel-branded FBO.
