Boardings at the Dickinson Theodore Roosevelt Regional Airport are once again down more than 60 percent from this time last year, according to figures released Wednesday by the North Dakota Aeronautics Commission.

In July, the airport had 1,451 total people board United Airlines twice-daily flights to Denver. That's down from 3,989 a year ago when it also had twice-daily flights to Minneapolis through Delta Air Lines, which pulled out of Dickinson last November, citing declining numbers.

United Airlines announced in early July that it will cease its service to Dickinson Theodore Roosevelt Regional Airport in September. However, United Airlines could be chosen to participate in the U.S. Department of Transportation's Essential Air Service program, a federal program that guarantees small communities maintain commercial service.

Statewide boardings are down about 13 percent from July 2015.
