WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — The Fargo Jet Center says it will build a 6,400-square-foot passenger facility next to the main terminal at Williston's airport this summer.

Vice president of marketing Darren Hall tells The Forum that officials have been watching the expansion of air service in western North Dakota and they believe a new center can improve service.

The Williston Jet Center will offer aircraft fueling, aircraft maintenance, flight instruction, aircraft charter management and aircraft sales at Sloulin Field International Airport.

Airport manager Steven Kjergaard says the oil boom has significantly increased private air service to Williston. He says oilfield crews, business executives and investors regularly flying in and out of the city.

The new center would be a competitor to Western Edge Aviation, which already operates at the Williston airport.
