New Flights from Bismarck to Dallas and Chicago

Posted: Updated:
Travelers can take off from Bismarck to two new places.

Mayor John Warford announced American Airlines will fly directly from Bismarck to Dallas and from Bismarck to Chicago.


The flight schedule begins on October 2nd.

The flights will depart and arrive every day.  The flights to Dallas are scheduled to take off at 7:20 a.m. and the flights to Chicago depart at 12:45 p.m.

 The jets can hold up to 50 passengers...one seat on one side of the plane and two seats on the other.

Warford says the Bismarck-Mandan Chamber of Commerce and the city worked out the deal with American Airlines.

The chamber president says it's a big deal for business in the energy industry...

 
(Kelvin Hullet/ Bis-Man Chamber president) "From here they can do business all around, not just the state. Obviously now with the connections they can do business all around the nation. All around the world." 

 Hullet says the connection with Dallas serves as a southern destination and will help the energy industry.

Chicago's O'Hare connects with anywhere in the world.

But, he says, they're not done looking for other destinations...


 
(Hullet) "We're not done yet, obviously this is an ongoing sort of a process that we have in recruiting air service and we would expect, that while we've been successful, we will continue to see if we can find new and more places for people to get to."

Hullet says the goal is to make Bismarck the northern destination where companies come to do business.
