A Great Place to Start

Allegiant flies out of here and gives you access to the west at a heck of a deal. Cozy place with free wifi and professional staff/TSA. Felt right at home.

- Garrett Meade

Great airport for a small urban center. The Grand Forks terminal offers international service and is a short drive for Winnipeggers looking for a deal on airfare. Parking is inexpensive, and although the terminal is small with limited amenities, it is clean and well maintained.

-Matt Bialek 

For a smaller airport, this is a gem. The staff is helpful, the facility is well maintained, and there were comfortable places to wait during a weather delay. Taxi service from the facility was great. There was simply nothing to find fault with this airport.

Korissa’s Blog: Airfield Inspections
