MINOT -- Minot’s new $43 million airport terminal opened Monday morning with a 5 a.m. Delta Airlines flight to Denver.

The Minot Area Chamber of Commerce was on hand for a ribbon cutting as the first passengers boarded the flight.

The new terminal is triple the size of the former terminal and is one of the most modern in the country with new technology and spaciousness for travelers, said airport officials.

Besides the new terminal, U.S. Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., said in announcing the project that the overall airport improvement of $75.7 million also includes  a new apron, snow removal building and parking lot. The terminal, he said, can also add additional gates in the future to accommodate further growth in boardings. The project also involves tearing down the old terminal to make room for additional parking.

“The expansion of the Minot Airport is an investment that will not only support the growth North Dakota has already enjoyed, but also the growth that will come in the future,” Hoeven said.
