North Dakota’s newest airport has officially opened this past week. Williston Basin International Airport has two runways and a 110,000-square-foot terminal. The airport’s four gates can accommodate 350,000 passengers annually.
Architecture and construction firm Burns & McDonnell also designed a quick turnaround facility and rental car parking lots to serve the airport’s three rental car vendors.
"We're thrilled to begin flights from the Williston Basin International Airport connecting passengers to domestic and international locations near and far," says Anthony Dudas, airport director. "With a 22 percent increase in airport traffic expected this year, we anticipate more than 140,000 passengers to be supported by our new airport facility."
