Customs officials in Florida say they will be operating at full capacity next year, and they’re opening for business after months of closed-down operations.
The Fort Lauderdale International Airport Authority says it is opening for regular business as of Sept. 2, after being closed since last fall due to the Ebola virus pandemic.
The airport will operate at a limited capacity of around 50 people a day.
The airport has a capacity of about 1,300 people, and a recent increase in passenger traffic from Europe and Asia has pushed that up to more than 2,000 people a weekday.
The authority says it has been operating under a 24-hour closure order, which means it is closed on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday nights, and on most other holidays.
It says it will be reopened for business on the weekend of Oct. 9.
The closure order also means airport officials are not allowed to collect passengers and baggage on site.
However, the authority says they can continue to operate a small amount of the airport’s retail stores.
The U.K. is expected to open its first international airport this fall, which is a departure from its normal schedule of one to two weeks a year.
