BISMARCK - North Dakota airports may get to take a breather.
The North Dakota Aeronautics Commission predicts airline boardings will continue to grow in 2015, but at a slightly less rapid pace than that of previous years.
In 2014, the state marked seven consecutive years of growth. That trend is continuing into 2015 so far, with 4 percent more boardings this January compared to the year before. Boarding numbers totaled 100,674 passengers compared to 96,803 passengers in January 2014.
That 4 percent is less than the 9 and 10 percent year-over-year growth rates experienced last year and several years prior, Kyle Wanner, director of the Aeronautics Commission, said.
“We know that with so many years of large growth, at some point, it needs to level off,” he said, and this could be that year.
