North Dakota Airports Rank Among Fastest Growing

Posted: Updated:

North Dakota's airports are getting some positive national attention. Statewide, airline boardings at the eight airports across the state jumped 9% last month, compared to September 2012. Sloulin Field International Airport in Williston topped the group with a 247% increase. Minot International Airport manager Andy Solsvig says those numbers are representative of our state's growth.

"When you have that kind of increase year over year it just shows the economic growth of the state as a whole. We're not just seeing it in one area; we're seeing it in northwestern, southwestern, and even on the eastern boarder of the state. Overall, business is doing well, people are traveling, it has to do with business and leisure," says Solsvig.

From January through September, the airports had more than 843,000 boardings, an increase of 79,000 from last year.
