SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - More people are apparently opting to fly out of the Sioux Falls Regional Airport than in recent years.
A yearlong market study found that 80 percent of passengers within 60 miles are going through Sioux Falls. Two to three years ago, the number was around 60 percent.
Sioux Falls has added two nonstop flights, and airport managers are looking for more.
Allegiant Air's service to Tampa, Fla., and the expansion of Delta's round-trip service to Atlanta are part of the airport's push to attract passengers who otherwise might fly out of Omaha, Neb., or Minneapolis.
