stuart jet center guests benefit from addition of customs

February 11, 2019

Operators flying to Stuart Jet Center will benefit from the convenience of U.S. Customs at KSUA for streamlined international travel to and from South Florida beginning Monday, February 11, 2019.

“We’ve been continuously increasing our amenities and services to better support a diverse group of operators,” said Dan Capen, president of Stuart Jet Center. “Adding a customs facility on the airport field is a major step to accommodating more needs, particularly for international operators looking for reliable, quality FBO services in South Florida. The addition of customs will be great for the airport, the community and those who visit us.”

The 3,210 square foot U.S. Customs facility at Witham Field will be the first intermodal clearance facility of its kind in Florida, processing international travelers arriving in Martin County by air and sea. Visitors to and from Stuart will no longer have to travel to Fort Pierce or West Palm Beach for their customs clearance.

In honor of the customs facility’s opening, Stuart Jet Center is offering its customers 10x (20) AVTRIP Points per gallon from February 11 through the end of April when clearing customs.

The facility is the second development project benefiting guests to Stuart Jet Center. Recently, the FBO opened two new hangars, each measuring 25,000 square feet and able to accommodate aircraft up to a G-650 and Global Express. The project included an additional 11,000 square feet of adjoining, class-A, hangar-accessible office and shop space for tenant convenience and lease.

With these additions, Stuart Jet Center now boasts an accommodating, 53-acre facility with more than 20 acres of lighted, secure ramp space; 340,000 square feet of hangar space; and a convenient location, just 1.3 miles north of the PBI presidential TFR zone for easy flying to West Palm Beach when President Trump’s in town. Flight operators also enjoy full ground handling services, charter and maintenance, avionics sales and services, pilot supplies, gourmet catering, concierge services, courtesy cars and shuttles, and the availability of Avfuel Contract Fuel and AVTRIP rewards as an Avfuel-branded FBO.
