Airplane boardings increase in North Dakota in 2018
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Nearly 1.1 million people boarded an airplane at one of the eight commercial airports in North Dakota last year, a 5 percent increase over 2017.
The state Aeronautics Commission says another 1.1 million people deplaned at a North Dakota airport, for a total passenger count of nearly 2.2 million.
Six of the eight airports saw an increase in passengers — Bismarck, Devils Lake, Dickinson, Fargo, Minot and Williston. The Bismarck and Devils Lake airports had their highest annual passenger count on record. Grand Forks and Jamestown had decreases.
