I would think it's because they would have scheduled flights outside of the US (or out of country). But, for example, DAY does not have any scheduled flights out of the US. Nor do they have any CBP services, so why is it called Dayton Int'l Airport?

Ah, thank you. Since I am at work my internet doesn't function quite right and I couldn't find any topics on this subject but I knew they had to exist.

No problem. At the very bottom of this thread there is a Similar Topics list of links shown. But this isn't shown until after the thread is started of course.

FWIW DAY does have customs

Yes, DAY has international service. AC has 2 daily nonstops to YYZ, operated by Air Georgian Beech 1900s.

In the US, all you need is the ability to process International flights, CBP agents either staffed at the airport or they can be there if notified ahead of time...

Sometimes, it is not whether or not an airport has customs facilities, but whether Customs is willing to come out to an airport with advanced notice. In the US, an airport must also be designated in the AIM (Airman's Information Manual) as an airport of entry by the FAA in order to be used as the point of first landing on a flight entereing the USA.

For example, Las Cruces, NM, LRU, is designated as an airport of entry (or at least it used to be, I haven't checked on this in a long time). However, it used to be that you had to give US Customs at least 24 hours prior notification to use LRU as an airport of entry. There are no customs facilities on the field, however US Customs agents would drive to the airport and meet you at a designated point on the tarmac (a circle painted on the ramp) for your customs inspection if you used it as an airport of entry. Same thing for 5T6 (Santa Teresa, New Mexico).
