TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - The airport just outside Toledo is spending $800,000 to build a new facility in order to bring back Customs and Border Protection agents.

Toledo Express Airport officials say they’ve had trouble getting international flights and passengers checked through customs since the agents consolidated its staff at a smaller airport in Port Clinton.

The Toledo airport director tells The Blade (https://bit.ly/1R6Bcje ) newspaper that two Toledo-based companies have had to use other airports to clear passengers who are flying to the U.S. with a green card.

He says two cargo companies have been turned away from using the airport because customs agents refused to allow them landing rights.
