BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Boardings at North Dakota's eight

commercial airports in February increased by 12.1 percent from the

previous year.

Aeronautics Commission Director Larry Taborsky says the 63,712

boardings was a 10-year high for the month of February. He says

that's impressive, considering persistent fog problems during the

month.

The Jamestown airport had the biggest percentage increase over

the year, of 28.9 percent. Fargo saw the biggest increase in actual

passengers, with 4,432 more boardings.
