BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) _ The North Dakota Aeronautics Commission says 8,000 more passengers boarded airlines in the state than during the previous February.
Williston led the way with a boarding increase of 138 percent, but Minot, Bismarck, Grand Forks and Fargo also had their best Februarys on record.
Statewide, boardings climbed by more than 10 percent to 93,679 in February.
Commission director Larry Taborsky says airlines have been responding to increased demand by increasing the number of flights and available seats.
Taborsky says that if the airports had additional capacity, the numbers would be even higher.
