visiting international flights and a part of that
service is the facilities we offer," says Shawn

international flights access to both services in one
location," adds Dobberstein.

worked together to promote Fargo as a preferred location
for both clearing U.S. Customs and FBO services. Our
international business has grown significantly over that
time," says FJC Vice President of marketing Darren Hall.

the experience for our international passengers and
crews when stopping in Fargo," adds Hall.
