Minot International Airport (IATA: MOT, ICAO: KMOT, FAA LID: MOT) is in Ward County, North Dakota, two miles north of the city of Minot, which owns it. The National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011 2015 categorized it as a primary commercial service airport. MOT currently handles between ten and fifteen commercial flights a day from three airlines, as well as various charters and general aviation traffic. For many years Northwest Airlines, followed by Delta Air Lines, was the airport’s sole commercial carrier but an economic and population boom have resulted in other carriers adding flights as well. Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, and Allegiant Airlines currently offer flights to Minneapolis, Denver, and Phoenix/Mesa and Las Vegas, respectively. Minot International has no scheduled passenger airline service out of the country, but receives its international title (like many other airports) because of its customs service. Customs service is available for aircraft arriving from Canada and other countries. The TSA fully searches all passengers and carry-on luggage prior to boarding, rather than using a selective process as is the case at major airports. Delta Air Lines operates up to six daily flights to Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport. All are on Delta Connection to Minneapolis. Delta Air Lines commands the largest percentage of MOT travelers. United Airlines became Minot’s second largest airline in 2010. It currently operates four daily flights to Denver International Airport. United also flies multiple weekly charters to Houston, Texas. Flight 2610 goes from Houston to Minot and Flight 2611 goes from Minot to Houston. Allegiant Airlines became the airport’s third airline in 2010, with flights to Las Vegas. Allegiant then added service to Phoenix-Mesa as well. The number of flights to each destinations fluctuates. Frontier Airlines became the airport’s fourth airline in 2012 with four flights per week to Denver International Airport. The original Frontier Airlines served Minot, on a route that connected it with Saskatoon, Regina and Denver, prior to that airline’s bankruptcy and halting of operations in 1986. Though passenger loads were high, Frontier discontinued service from Minot in 2015 due to restructuring of the airline.
