XWA opened October 10, 2019 and was the first new greenfield airport in the United States to be built from the ground up within the past nine years. The State of North Dakota, Federal Aviation Administration, and the City of Williston collaborated to build XWA. The 103,000-square-foot terminal has four gates with three passenger boarding bridges and is designed to accommodate about 300 passengers per hour at peak use and aircraft up to 250,000lbs.
