Airport Sees Heavy Holiday Traffic

Posted: Updated:

Not everyone with an airline ticket is able to get on a scheduled flight. Over the weekend, some passengers in Minot took a taxi to Bismarck or Fargo to catch other flights, because their flights had been oversold.

It can happen when several people are buying tickets in different places and different ways at the same time.

"Any long holiday that there is, we always expect those, we always expect overbooking's," says Central Cab Company manager, Chris Braun. "You know, the way bookings are you can go from online to going to actual websites and there booking at the same time.  It's going to happen, it's unfortunate that some people have to miss their flights, but yeah, we were on the stand by, and I had the meeting last week, and then we got geared up. I got my supervisors on it and we are prepared and ready."

For a better chance of getting a seat on such a flight, passengers are encouraged to arrive at the airport at least two hours in advance.
