Major improvements for the Tulsa International Airport (TUL) mean nonstop international flights will be landing at TUL in the next 5 years. Thanks to a new Federal Inspection Services (FIS) wing of the airport which will include customs and an international terminal, travelers will be able to fly in and out of the country without stopping at a larger hub airport.
TUL has never had an international flight because it didn’t have customs large enough. Currently, there is a small U.S. Customs and Border Protection office that can clear private/charter flights of 20 passengers or fewer and cargo flights, but nothing that can accommodate large commercial aircraft.
Selser Schaefer Architects has teamed up with aviation and mobility specialists Corgan to design and construct this game-changing addition to TUL. The new 45,000-square-foot FIS facility will be the first thing travelers see upon pulling up to the airport. The interior will feature local landmarks and Tulsa’s signature art deco on graphics and design details, showcasing our city for international travelers.
