The Grand Forks International Airport brings over two-hundred million dollars to Grand Forks each year.

The Grand Forks International Airport brings in over $200 million to Grand Forks each year.

It is part of the economic impact of aviation in Grand Forks, an industry responsible for nearly 1,900 local jobs.

Aviation as a whole brings over $300 million to the city, a big part of the more than $1 billion aviation brings in across the state.

"We do look at Grand Forks as being a large portion of the total economic impact for aviation when you look at the total versus the $1.2 billion total for entire state aeronautics," said GFK Executive Director Patrick Dame.
