ALPA demands answers on plans for Dubai preclearance site

Today Capt. Moak sent a letter to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner questioning the agency’s plans for future preclearance sites in the Middle East.

ALPA has long been opposed to the plan to operate a CBP preclearance site at Abu Dhabi International Airport, and during a recent visit to Abu Dhabi, Capt. Moak and other ALPA representatives met with CBP officials to raise concerns about the impact of future preclearance facility sites in the region that do not first and foremost serve the needs of the U.S. airline industry. Of particular concern to ALPA was the possibility of opening such a facility in Dubai, but CBP representatives assured ALPA that Dubai was “logistically challenging” and “outside of the agency’s scope.” It was clear from that discussion that Dubai was not being actively considered as a preclearance site.

However, a recent news report has indicated that a new preclearance facility is planned for Dubai within a year. Given the statements made by CBP personnel to ALPA in Abu Dhabi, Capt. Moak’s letter asks the agency directly if a site is indeed slated to open in Dubai.
