Customs approves application for German airlines landing rights

Posted: Monday, April 09, 2001

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The U.S. Customs Service has approved an application for Condor German Airlines to land in Fairbanks with European tourists this summer.

Customs earlier had rejected the request because it said airport facilities could not adequately process foreign arrivals. The agency reversed its position after Alaska Sen. Frank Murkowski interceded.

Customs now will allow the airline to bring up to 80 passengers a week from Frankfurt, Germany, to Fairbanks between May 24 and Sept. 27.

The approval was granted after officials in Anchorage pitched in and provided a spare X-ray machine for use at the Fairbanks airport.
