Survey looks at possible air travel from Rapid City to Williston, North Dakota

Posted:
Should there be air travel from Rapid City to Williston, North Dakota? That is the main question in a survey put out by the Rapid City Chamber of Commerce.

The purpose of the survey is to find out how many people drive for business from Rapid City to the oil fields of North Dakota. It also asks if they would use flight service.

Linda Rabe, President and CEO of the Rapid City Chamber of Commerce, says if flights were to take off it would be an economic boost for both states. She also says many people have told her they travel that distance frequently.

"We are seeing more and more people that work up in the North Dakota oil field and they live down here. Whether it's in Spearfish, or Belle Fourche has seen a big influx, and we have as well. And so they were saying well yeah we would love to jump on a flight," said Rabe.

Rabe says the survey will be up for two or three weeks. Then they'll shut it down to evaluate the response. To take the survey, visit this website.
