Sloulin Field ISN Airport Overview
Williston Sloulin Field International Airport ISN serves western North Dakota and eastern Montana. While the Airport in the past served mainly as general aviation airport, regular commercial air traffic has recently increased considerably - due to the fact that Williston is in the center of the Bakken Shale Formation - the largest U.S. oil reserve - and a provider of expanding businesses and employment.
ISN Airport is only two miles north of the central business district of Williston, in Williams County, North Dakota. Sloulin Field has U.S. customs facilities.
With 81K passengers yearly, Sloulin Field Airport is served by Delta, Great Lakes (with code-share Frontier) & United, offering direct flights to Denver & Minneapolis, with connections worldwide.
The Passenger Terminal at Sloulin Field Airport currently offers basic services, including rental car counters. The rising passenger demand necessitated the rental of a modular unit with 80 additional chairs (a short walk after security checkpoint), as well as the addition of 4 self check-in kiosks (2 each for Delta & United). Delta & United share a ground staff and counter space.
While these measures are of a temporary nature, the question whether to expand the terminal and relocate the Airport should be resolved any day now.
Future Airport developments: Due to the Williston Basin oil exploration and expected high-volume air traffic, the Airport has recently prepared an Environmental Assessment - a further step in deciding on either a new airport site or the extension of the current one.
