Hoeven Helps Secure Funding to Support New Flights Between Williston Basin International Airport and Phoenix

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the Senate Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Committee, today announced that the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has awarded a $500,000 grant to the City of Williston to support flight availability at the Williston Basin International Airport. This funding was made available through the Small Community Air Services Development Program (SCASDP) funded through the annual appropriations legislation and will help secure twice-weekly air service to Phoenix, Arizona. Hoeven expressed his support for the service in a letter to SCASDP Associate Director Chapman last week.  

“This grant will help Williston secure new air service to and from Phoenix, Arizona” said Hoeven. “This means better access to affordable air travel for the region’s residents and businesses, supporting the continued growth of the local economy and improving the quality of life in Williston and surrounding communities.”
