BISMARCK, North Dakota — Boardings at North Dakota's eight commercial service airports in July dropped about 4 percent from the previous year.

The state Aeronautics Commission reports Dickinson had the biggest percentage drop, of just under 30 percent. Minot saw the biggest drop in actual passengers, with about 3,700 fewer boardings than in July 2014.

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

Officials have cited slumping oil activity and a weaker Canadian dollar as reasons for drops in boardings in recent months.
