Georgetown Aviation Services can now accept international aircraft arrivals as a result of a recent arrangement between Delaware Coastal Airport (KGED) and US Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
Though CBP does not have a facility on the field at KGED, the new arrangement allows for international flights to receive customs clearance as long as this service is requested with 72 hours of notice prior to their arrival.
End user fees for customs clearance and international trash disposal are assessed to the aircraft operator.
Garrett Dernoga, owner of Georgetown Air Services, said, “This new service is a great addition for the airport and adds a new level of convenience for our based customers and transient arrivals.
“This development, combined with the recent runway extension and upgraded approach lighting, are examples of how Georgetown Air Service and Delaware Coastal Airport are continuously taking steps to improve our offering to benefit aircraft operators and passengers.”
Delaware Coastal Airport offers travelers quick access to the Delaware state beach resort communities of Rehoboth Beach, Bethany Beach and Fenwick Island.
