FAIRBANKS - U.S. Customs and Border Protection has reversed its denial of a Fairbanks-Dawson City, Yukon, direct flight next summer, and has announced a plan to double the number of customs positions at Fairbanks International Airport to handle a higher workload.

The federal agency last month denied a proposal by Whitehorse-based Air North to offer nine flights a week between the two cities, citing a staffing shortage in Fairbanks that left it unable handle international flights from the Canadian community. The flights were part of a plan by Holland America to transport as many as 19,000 visitors by air between the destinations, allowing the company to minimize bus travel.
