State Sets Airline Boarding Record

Posted: Updated:

A record number of people boarded commercial airliners in North Dakota in 2013.

The final numbers are out -- and it shows an nearly one-point-one-four million people left the state through the air at North Dakota's major airports.

That is an increase of more than 100-thousand over 2012, which was the previous record.

Overall the state had a ten-point-seven-six percent increase.

For the year, Minot International Airport was actually down just a bit -- one percent.

Airport manager Andy Solsvig says competition with Bismarck, and especially Williston kept Minot steady this year.

And he said he was pleased with the month of December which was the biggest ever for the Magic City.

Speaking of Williston, Sloulin Field saw the greatest year-to-year increase with 94 thousand boardings in 2013.

That was an increase of nearly 152 percent over 2012.
