Overland Aviation, the lone service provider at North Dakota’s Williston Basin International Airport (KXWA), has opened its new permanent terminal and U.S. Customs facility. The 51,000-sq-ft complex includes a 17,200-sq-ft, two-story terminal with a pilot lounge, refreshment bar, concierge service, a separate private terminal for large charter flights, and tenant office space. KXWA replaced nearby outmoded Sloulin Field International Airport in 2019, and Overland held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to coincide with the airport’s first airshow.

The airport is on the Great Circle Route between Europe and the Western U.S., and the complex includes an attached 3,800-sq-ft customs facility with a separate entrance and exit. It was designed and built to U.S. CBP specifications, and the company offers quick turns for its international customers. The adjoining 30,000-sq-ft heated hangar can accommodate aircraft up to the size of a Gulfstream G650.

The FBO is positioning itself as not only convenient but economical for customers because they can avoid landing, handling, security, and infrastructure fees. Ramp and international trash disposal fees are waived with any fuel purchase.

“Today’s milestone celebrates the culmination of years of planning and development on our mission to deliver industry-leading tech stops to a global market,” said company founder and president Tanner Overland.
