Our Vision: To be the nationally recognized voice for the public interest, states and territories on aviation and the national aviation system.


North Dakota has seen a rise in airport passengers this year, allowing the state to continually set records for each month when compared to the previous year. The total number of airport travelers increased by 14% in April of this year compared to 2013. February and March both saw an 8% increase over last year’s numbers. We also hear that American Airlines will begin flying daily air service out of Bismarck to Chicago and Dallas/Fort Worth beginning in October. Kyle Wanner (North Dakota) said, “New destinations and airline service being added to our state system of airports is always great news. Improved air service and additional competition helps drive down passenger air fares and provide lucrative business and tourism climate for our communities.”
