Air travel continues to recover in North Dakota.
According to the North Dakota Aeronautics Commission, 43,559 people boarded airplanes in August, at North Dakota’s eight commercial airports. State Aeronautics Commission director Kyle Wanner said since COVID-19 virtually shut down air travel in March, the state has seen passenger numbers rebound.
Wanner said it’s good to see demand returning.
"It's still far below the pre-pandemic number," Wanner sid. "But at the same time, these are encouraging numbers."
