Atlantic speeds international arrivals with Oxford CT facility
Being able to clear customs at Waterbury-Oxford, rather than other high traffic airports in the region, will be much easier for virtually any flight transiting the border, says Atlantic.
Ready to receive international arrivals.

Atlantic Aviation's FBO at Waterbury-Oxford Airport (OXC) in Oxford, Connecticut has opened the doors to its newly constructed U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) facility.

The custom-built, state-of-the-art, 4,000 square foot facility features briefing rooms, holding areas and closed-interview capabilities. It offers international travellers a time-saving alternative to other U.S. Customs gateways in the region.

The facility was funded in part by Atlantic Aviation as part of the company's on-going commitment to invest in facilities and enhance the customer experience for both domestic and international fliers. It was also made possible through close collaboration with both the Connecticut Airport Authority and CBP.

“The time savings and convenience this new facility creates for our customers is significant,” says Shawn Rose, area director for Atlantic Aviation. “Being able to now clear customs at Waterbury-Oxford, rather than other high traffic airports in the region, will be much easier for virtually any flight transiting the border.”

“This opening of a U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility marks a significant milestone in the continued growth of Waterbury-Oxford Airport,” adds Kevin A. Dillon, A.A.E., executive director of the Connecticut Airport Authority. “It opens the doors to more international travel and provides a seamless experience to those travelling for business or leisure purposes. We thank U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Atlantic Aviation for their partnership in making this enhancement a reality.”
