North Dakota airports break record for number of passengers in January; up 4 percent over 2014


BISMARCK, North Dakota — The Aeronautics Commission says the state's eight commercial airports are continuing to break passenger boarding records.

The commission released its summary of January boarding statistics on Wednesday. They show there were almost 3,900 more boardings this January over last year during the same period. That 4 percent increase brings passenger totals for the month to almost 101,000, the most ever recorded in January.

The state's commercial airports have continued to see steady increases over the last decade. Aeronautics Commission data show there were only about 54,000 boardings statewide in January of 2006.

The commission says passenger boardings for 2014 were up 9 percent, bringing the total to 1.2 million.
