"People now are being able to afford flights. In our location probably in North Dakota in general because its such great driving distance to get anywhere. I`m assuming that`s why a lot more people fly. Plus we have such an influx of out of state workers they`re trying to get back home to another state so it makes it more convenient to fly," said Minot airport director Andy Solsvig.
Minot International Airport has a decreased schedule for Christmas so some crews could spend time with their families. The airport was down three flights today.
