More Seats by Summer, Says Bismarck Airport

Posted: Updated:

 

Coming soon -- more seat capacity in and out of Bismarck Airport.

Airport management says Frontier Airlines has been profitable each month they've been in Bismarck.  So much so, they're phasing in bigger airplanes.

"By June, all the E-190s should be gone -- June of this year -- and we'll have a 54% increase in our seat capacity on Frontier alone. . . .  They were so successful in the Bismarck market, that they started service up in Minot, and then they returned service over to Fargo," says Greg Haug, Manager of Bismarck Airport.

Though Republic Airlines is reportedly trying to sell Frontier, airport management is hopeful Frontier will be purchased by investors who maintain service here.  Bismarck might even see additional carriers in the future.  Though there are no specifics at this time, the airport says they're "working on relationships with several carriers."
