BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Airline boardings at North Dakota’s eight commercial service airports last year dropped about 2 percent from the previous year.

The state Aeronautics Commission says boardings still surpassed 1 million in 2017. Bismarck, Jamestown and Devils Lake also posted record passenger numbers.

Top destinations for North Dakota travelers were Phoenix, Las Vegas, Orlando, Denver and Minneapolis.

Boardings have decreased three straight years since the record of 1.2 million in 2014. The commission says high oil and agriculture commodity prices led to the record that year.

The eight commercial service airports in North Dakota are in Fargo, Grand Forks, Bismarck, Minot, Williston, Dickinson, Devils Lake and Jamestown.
