North Dakota’s commercial airports saw a surge in demand during March.
"We saw about 72,000 passengers in March 2021," said North Dakota Aeronautics Commission director Kyle Wanner. "That's about 22,000 more than in February."
Wanner said that’s the kind of trajectory he’d hoped to see as summer travel season approaches.
"People want to begin traveling again," Wanner said. "They want to see family, they want to take a vacation, and they obviously want to do that in a safe way as well."
