BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Passenger numbers continue to decline at North Dakota’s eight commercial service airports.

Data from the state Aeronautics Commission show that boardings in March were down 11.5 percent from the previous year. Year-to-date boardings are down nearly 13 percent.

Airports in the slumping oil patch had the biggest decline in March - a 37.5 percent drop for Williston and a decline of more than 66 percent for Dickinson.

The Fargo, Grand Forks and Minot airports also saw boardings decreases, while Bismarck, Devils Lake and Jamestown had increases.
