Minot MOT Airport Overview
Due to the Bakken Shale Oil Field development, air traffic has increased tremendously - expected to go even further. Minot Airport is preparing for it by adjusting its infrastructure & accommodating growing passenger counts.
MOT Airport is only 2 miles north of downtown Minot, accessible by State Hwys. 82 and 2 and by Route 52. It is open 4am to one hour after the last flight of the day.
With 2 runways and over 440K passengers per year, the Airport is served by major airlines offering daily nonstop flights to major hubs with convenient connections.
The Airport requests that passengers arrive at least 90 minutes prior to their scheduled departure.
The current passenger terminal at Minot International has received recent renovations and gate area expansion and is planning for a new terminal and new adjacent parking lot. It presently offers free internet access, sandwich and drink vending machines in the main lobby, rental car counters and a gift shop.
Current airlines serving the terminal: Allegiant, Delta, Frontier & United - as well as Bernidji Aviation & Sunwest Aviation, and KLM & Air France (with stopovers at Minneapolis).
Future Airport Developments: A new passenger terminal adjacent to the parking lot has had its ground breaking in Fall 2013 and its foundation work started in May 2014. It is to be three times larger than the present one, will have 6 gates, a restaurant & gift shop - all to be completed by Fall 2015.
