KFYR-TV in Bismark has the report: Williston Airport Breaks Record.
It is about a month that United and Delta have been flying into Williston. The article reports 5,000 passengers through the airport in November. That is the record, surpassing the previous record of 2,000.
To go along with the extra waiting space, there are around 30 Delta employees working at the airport. They do everything from check people in to getting the planes ready for takeoff. Even with the huge increase, the airport is running smoothly, but they have run into one problem.
Next issue to address is parking. The airport is working on it.
Here is the flight count:
In November Delta had 36 flights and United had 78.
