As the result of a recent arrangement between Delaware Coastal Airport (KGED) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Georgetown Aviation Services can now accept international aircraft arrivals.
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-hour’s notice prior to their arrival. End user fees for customs clearance and international trash disposal are assessed to the aircraft operator.
“This new service is a great addition for the airport and adds a new level of convenience for our based customers and transient arrivals,” said Garrett Dernoga, owner of Georgetown Air Services. “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.”
