What are all of the flights into and out of North Dakota? I have this strange facination with North Dakota and to know as much about it as I can. It's really weird. I don't quite understand it myself.

The last time I checked, UA had a flight into Williston from Denver, while NW flew into Minot from Minneapolis. I'm sure there are more flights into the eastern cities, but those are the two best flights for me when I go there to visit family (Bottineau).

I lived in Fargo for a number of years (no comment) and I became very familiar with the local airport. Fargo has had quite an interesting history of air service, largely due to the fact that so many airlines have tried and failed to steal some of the market from NW. NW enjoyed a virtual monopoly in Fargo (and most of the larger North Dakota cities) for many years and their brand recognition became so extreme that airlines like Continental, United, American, and Frontier just came and went (I still have the invitation from Stephen Wolf to the closing of United's Fargo station). There was this bizarre Fargoan mentality that equated air service with NW and NW alone and I suspect that this was only detrimental to the North Dakota customers.

These days (though I should warn that my knowledge of ND air service is limited to a visit every year or so) NW and United Express have reached a sort of market stasis, with the former flying to MSP and the latter to ORD and DEN. The commercial market in general has opened up a lot in North Dakota as the cities have grown and the consumer markets have matured (I remember a time in the mid-nineties, for example, when Builders Square built a new big-box hardware megastore and Fargoans refused to leave their smaller and more expensive local chain; Builders Square left and Home Depot came in, and it failed as well; Fargo was just a very strange, anomolous market).

Hope that helps a little.



This is the time. And this is the record of the time.

North Dakota is indeed a wonderful state. No other state in the US has nearly as many fields of dirt decorating its glorious vistas. In the winter, the snowdrifts obscure the road surfaces somewhat, but the routes remain clearly marked by the rows of telephone poles, which double as the North Dakota state tree. Picking out individual houses in the winter is made easy by the thoughtful placement of cars on blocks in most front yards. Indeed, North Dakota's majestic winter wonderland could easily be mistaken for the beautiful areas of Antarctica, were it not for the plentiful liquor stores and casinos dotting the plains.
Critics of North Dakota claim that there is little to do but drink in such a sparsly populated state. They are completely mistaken. Year after year, alcohol has proven itself as the single most effective means of fighting boredom in North Dakota. When supplemented with a variety of sports and hobbies such as ice fishing, gambling, and Nascar events, drinking becomes a lifestyle that the whole family can enjoy.
Culture and commerce abound in North Dakota, which has more bait shops and gun rack suppliers per capita than any other state in the nation. North Dakota also enjoys supporting other industries of the nation by leading the way in consumption of flannel, chewing tobacco, white sleeveless t-shirts, and a variety of anti-depression drugs. This stimulates the economy of neighboring states and the nation as a whole.
So if you still haven't experienced the wonder that is North Dakota, plan a trip right away. North Dakota is home to over 8 hotels in 3 cities, 6 of which now have amenities such as electricity and indoor plumbing. These fine establishments are topped only by the sense of pride, adventure, and motivation that North Dakota residents instill in each and every visitor.

Enjoy your visit!

Fargo is the largest airport, with quite a few flights.. I think combined, the rest of the state sees probably 40 flights total if that.

From what i have understand the majority of NW (mainline) s weekday flights into FAR are on A319 and 320 equipment (except for some early and late flights) while the DC9 (belive thet the -51 is the primary workhorse to FAR) steals the show in the weekends.
The other flights are ARJ and maybe als CRJ's from NW airlink.

For those of you who have been to FRA alot (not only in the last years) Has the Bobcat (the skidsteer loader) display in the arrival hall (near the rent a car s) always been a sort of "trademark" for the airport?

BIS only get DC9 from NW mainline, whil NW airlink also use the Saab 340.
For those of you who haven't been to BIS, i can say that it's a nice litle airport with a very personal feeling. It was quite a strange experience fro me.

I currently go to school in Grand Forks, ND. Trust me, by not visiting North Dakota, you're not missing much  Wink/being sarcastic. I love how the Grand Forks airport tries to make itself feel like a large airport. In reality they have 2 Gates, and one baggage carosel  Smile/happy/getting dizzy. And of course they have signs in huge letters that say "GATE 1" then about 6 feet over "GATE 2". However, due to my school, I remember reading somewhere else that Grand Forks is the 44th busiest airport in the United States.
