Customs Designates McKinney a User-fee Airport

 - October 3, 2007, 10:49 AM

McKinney Municipal Airport in Dallas has been added to the list of the U.S. Customs Service’s designated user-fee airports. Operators must obtain advance permission to clear customs at user-fee facilities, which unlike international or landing rights airports are not staffed with full-time, government-paid customs agents. Instead, customs services are provided on demand and paid for by the airport, which typically passes the fees on to operators.
