BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Airline boardings at North Dakota's eight large airports in January were up 19 percent over the year.

The data from the state Aeronautics Commission show that the jump was due in large part to booming business at the Dickinson and Williston airports in western North Dakota's oil patch. Boardings at Dickinson were up nearly 78 percent, and they rose more than 172 percent in Williston.

Minot saw the biggest increase in actual passengers, with more than 5,900 additional boardings over the year.
