NBAA Leads Effort to Maintain U.S. Customs Inspections at Van Nuys and Burbank

Washington, DC, June 7, 2000 – The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) led a recent effort to maintain Customs inspections at Van Nuys and Burbank Airports in California, which benefits those who engage in international business aviation travel. Federal Inspection Services (FIS) will continue to process general aviation aircraft arriving in the United States at Burbank or Van Nuys by assigning staff from Los Angeles International Airport.

These measures are scheduled to be activated on or about July 1, 2000. For more information, visit, contact NBAA Regional Representative Dan Burkhart at (760) 749-6303, or contact NBAA Director, International Operations Bill Stine at (202) 783-9256.

NBAA represents the aviation interests of over 6,100 companies which own or operate general aviation aircraft as an aid to the conduct of their business, or are involved with business aviation. NBAA Member Companies earn annual revenues approaching $5 trillion — a number that is about half the gross domestic product — and employ more than 19 million people worldwide. The NBAA Annual Meeting & Convention is the world’s largest display of civil aviation products and services.
