BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) _ Airline boardings at North Dakota's eight commercial airports in May were up 26 percent over May 2011.
State Aeronautics Commissioner Larry Taborsky says 84,000 people boarded planes at the state's eight commercial and regional airports last month.
Taborsky says airports at Bismarck, Dickinson and Williston had all-time record boardings in May while Grand Forks and Minot set boarding records for the month.
Six of the eight airports saw increases over the year. Devils Lake and Jamestown were the only airports that had a decrease from 2011.
