Brussels Airport to get preclearance facilities for US bound flights


After years of discussions, Belgium and Brussels Airport have finally succeeded: US preclearance facilities will be built at Brussels Airport, so that the United States border control can be completed prior to departure.

In the future, some thirty US customs officers will be stationed at Brussels Airport to set up a preclearance facility. As a result, travelers who are heading to the United States will be able to clear the border formalities in Brussels before they even board.

This allows travelers to enter the United States more quickly and easily upon arrival, which should give Brussels a significant advantage in ease of use for passengers traveling to the United States.

Brussels is an important airport for American flights. United flies to Chicago, Newark and Washington. Delta to Atlanta and New York. Brussels Airlines to New York and Washington. In addition, United is an important partner for Brussels Airlines.

Dublin and Shannon are currently the only airports in Europe to offer such pre-clearance facilities.
