Miami Executive Aviation to Expand Customs at Opa Locka

Miami Executive Aviation announced today that it has once again led the way at Miami’s Opa Locka Executive Airport (KOPF) to expand the hours that U.S. Customs operates on the field.  Previously only available until 9 p.m., the airport can now accept international aircraft arrivals until midnight year round. “After 13 years in business, we’re very excited to have the led the way once again to provide both our customers, as well as other users of the airport, with better service through these expanded hours,” said Fabio Alexander, CEO of Miami Executive Aviation and Chief Marketing Officer of Ross Aviation. “This change is a fantastic benefit to aircraft that were previously forced to use larger commercial airports when arriving internationally because of the time restriction and we’re proud to have been a part of this positive change.” The company had previously worked closely with local officials for nearly two years, starting in 1996, to expand the hours of operation of U.S. Customs and the hours were finally expanded for the first time in 1998. In lobbying for expanding the hours a second time, the company this time reached out to other businesses at the airport in order to build a coalition.
