Since opening in early June 2016, the new International Arrivals Terminal at Austin Straubel International Airport has seen a significant rise in traffic through what is becoming a hotspot for corporate and private traffic. The last seven months alone of 2016 say 277 flights clear US Customs.
The new facility has enabled the airport to expand it’s capabilities for international traffic services such as a fully operational USDA-approved auto-clave to handle regulated international trash.
The new terminal also provides space and upgraded technology for CBP officers to operate in facilities that meet the federal security standards.
As this trend continues, Austin Straubel Directors believe this momentum will bring international commercial charter aircraft capabilities within reach sooner than most expected.
