International Arrivals

Exterior of the customs facility at SBN

Aircraft arriving into the U.S. from international locations can now be cleared by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Located at the east end of the main airport terminal, the new General Aviation Facility (GAF) accommodates private flights originating outside the country. The new facility offers trash processing, fueling and other services to private international flights, making KSBN an easy one-stop destination. Fueling can be coordinated with one of the Fixed-Base Operators (FBOs) listed below.

International arrivals must be requested 24 hours in advance by speaking with a local CBP officer: (574) 232-9650. Weekend arrivals require notification the preceding Friday.
