New Customs Inspection Station Opens At LAN

CBP Access Now Available At Lansing

A new US Customs and Border Protection Federal Inspection Station opened to the public, Tuesday, at the Capital Region International Airport. The ribbon-cutting ceremony revealed a new $4.3 million, 17,500 square foot facility located at the east end of the main terminal.

"The Capital Region International Airport is now officially a gateway to Michigan for international travel," said Robert Selig, Executive Director of the Capital Region Airport Authority. "Growth in the air passenger industry today is focused on international flights. We expect commercial airlines will soon begin offering direct access to worldwide travel from the Capital Region International Airport because this new US Customs facility is open."

The Capital Region International Airport is the only international airport in Michigan outside Detroit with a full-service U.S. Customs and Border Protection Inspection Station. The new inspection station is prepared to process up to 200 commercial airline passengers per hour.

The airport opened Port Lansing in June 2008 as an official international port of entry into the country with an interim facility for US Customs and Border Protection at the west end of the airport terminal building to help process international general and corporate aviation passengers and airfreight. Freight shipments into the state now avoid slower customs processing operations than at other Michigan airports.

Construction of the new U.S. Customs facility was completed ahead of schedule and on budget. In recent years, the Capital Region International Airport has been the site of nearly $20 million in airport improvement projects that included extending the main airport runway to 8,500 feet.
