Traffic through the Grand Forks Airport continues to slip and slide. Just over 85-hundred people passed through the gates in April. That’s down 21-percent compared to the same time one year ago. It’s also the lowest April boardings report since 2011. So far this year air travel through the G-F-K is down just shy of 16-percent – or 76-hundred travelers. G-F-K Executive Director Ryan Riesinger says the primary driver has been the exchange rate. He says the percentage of Canadian travelers has been cut in half.
