US Customs has opened at Witham Field Airport (KSUA) in South Florida, benefiting operators flying to Stuart Jet Center based at the hub.
The 3,210ft² (300m²) US Customs facility at Witham Field will be the first intermodal clearance facility of its kind in Florida, processing international travelers 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.
In honor of the customs facility’s opening, Stuart Jet Center is offering its customers 10 Avtrip Points per gallon from February 11 through the end of April when clearing customs.
The facility is the second development project benefiting guests to Stuart Jet Center. Recently, the FBO opened two new hangars, with each measuring 25,000ft² (2,322m²) and able to accommodate aircraft up to a G 650 and Global Express. The project included an additional 11,000ft² (1,022m²) of adjoining, hangar-accessible office and shop space for tenant convenience and lease.
Dan Capen, president of Stuart Jet Center, said, “We’ve been continuously increasing our amenities and services to better support a diverse group of operators. 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 South Florida.
“The addition of customs will be great for the airport, the community and those who visit us.”
