North Dakota October airline boardings down nearly 10 percent from 2014; Dickinson hit hardest


BISMARCK, North Dakota — Boardings at North Dakota's eight commercial service airports in October dropped nearly 10 percent from the previous year, with the airport in Dickinson seeing the sharpest decrease.

The state Aeronautics Commission reports the airports saw almost 99,300 boardings last month compared to more than 110,100 boardings in October 2014.

The airport in Dickinson experienced a drop of almost 40 percent as only 3,524 boardings were tallied in October.

Airports in Fargo, Minot and Williston also saw decreases over the year, while airports in Bismarck, Devils Lake, Grand Forks and Jamestown saw increases.

Officials have cited slumping oil activity among the reasons for drops in boardings in recent months.

Boardings at the airport in Dickinson could decrease further as Delta Airlines has announced it will stop servicing that facility Nov. 30.
