Puerto Rican FBO partners with US customs


The Pazos FBO at Luis Munoz Marin International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico, has opened a new general aviation processing facility, the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has announced. The facility was built in full compliance and adherence to CBP standards and guidelines to provide the inspection of international flights and travelers, and will be at no cost to CBP.

Marcelino Borges, director of field operations in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands, said, “CBP welcomes the opportunity to work with the private sector with the goal of improving the traveler experience upon arrival into the USA, therefore increasing tourism and fostering economic growth while ensuring the highest level of security.”

Jose Maldonado, president of Pazos FBO services, added, “Working with CBP throughout the development process of their new customs immigration and agriculture terminal has been a very informative and helpful experience, providing us with valuable knowledge.

“Having CBP co-located within our new modern FBO will make entry into the USA a secure and pleasant experience for travelers. It will also shorten the time between disembarking from an aircraft and entering CBP, making the connection into the USA a seamless process.”
