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.
In October 2013 the new Williston Jet Center opened and will take care of visitors & flight cew, and hadle charter service, private charter, private jet charter and all other related services.
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 217K passengers yearly, Sloulin Field Airport is served by Delta & United airlines, 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 and together they offer flights to Denver, Minneapolis & Houston.
