DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) - United Airlines will continue to serve the Dickinson airport in the western North Dakota oil patch for another two years.

United announced earlier this year that it planned to discontinue twice-daily nonstop service between Dickinson and Denver, effective Sept. 27.

The federal Transportation Department in July ordered United not to stop service until a new contract could be awarded under the Essential Air Service program, which subsidizes flights to rural cities.

The state’s congressional delegation says the department has selected United for a $4.1 million contract to provide subsidized service through September 2018.
