  • Customs bottleneck continues at Miami airport
    Approximately 700 passengers per day miss their connecting flights at Miami International Airport because of long wait times to get through customs. Airport officials say that despite a larger terminal, the customs area is understaffed. "You’re talking one out of 20 passengers missing their flights, and that’s just unacceptable," said airport spokesman Greg Chin. "Over 92 percent of passengers processed by CBP through the Miami International Airport wait 60 minutes or less," said Matt Chandler, a Customs and Border Protection spokesman.

So it’s obviously a benefit for travelers," said Jonathan Dean, an airport spokesman. WJZ-TV (Baltimore) (10/2) sm_share.gifLinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
