Airline passenger boardings were down at most – but not all – commercial airports in the state last month.
The numbers from August show a slight dip in boardings at Minot International Airport compared to August of last year – about a 3 percent drop.
Williston saw a more pointed drop of more than 28 percent compared to a year ago.
Only Bismarck’s airport bucked the downward trend – with a 4 percent increase in boardings.
About 86,000 passengers boarded planes across the state in August – down over 10 thousand from last year.
