MINOT, N.D. (AP) - The airport in Minot is hoping to fill some unused space with a video arcade despite seeing its passenger numbers drop because of the slumping oil patch.

Rick Seltner is the director of the Minot International Airport. He tells the Minot Daily News (https://bit.ly/29a1tNa ) the airport is seeking someone interested in operating an arcade within the terminal.

The airport opened a new $43 million terminal in February. It has six gates, four jet bridges, state-of-the-art monitors and boarding areas, a sports bar-style restaurant and a play area for children.

But like other airports across the state, Minot’s facility has seen fewer passengers since oil prices began to drop.

Seltner says the area for the arcade won’t require much infrastructure and would like to see it utilized as soon as possible.
