About Grand Forks International Airport (GFK)
Though it's called an "international" airport, Grand Forks doesn't actually have any outbound international flights as of this writing. It actually only serves four domestic locations at present: Las Vegas, Phoenix, Orlando and Minneapolis-St. Paul. Even so, it's North Dakota's largest and busiest airport and the central destination for those arriving to the state. Many people traveling to nearby Winnipeg also arrive here and drive or take a shuttle the rest of the way.
Cheap Flights from Grand Forks International Airport (GFK)
At present, Grand Forks only has two carriers: Allegiant Air and a regional Delta Connection service. Delta only goes to Minneapolis-St. Paul from here, while Allegiant serves the other three destinations. The most traffic by far is to Minneapolis, where passengers generally connect to flights going to all sorts of other domestic and international destinations.
Since traffic to this airport is relatively limited and there's no competition between the carriers, getting a flight deal from GFK can be very challenging. Many passengers find it better to go to Minneapolis for bargains instead if the driving distance is not prohibitive. You might also find a deal on stand-alone flights from here to Minneapolis; use the Month Search feature to quickly see what upcoming days are going to have the lowest prices.
Features of Grand Forks International Airport (GFK) for Outbound Passengers
There is no city or county bus providing direct service to the Grand Forks airport. A handful of private shuttle companies and the local taxi services are all that is available. Some of the local hotels do provide a free shuttle to the airport for their guests, however: the CanadInn, Express Suites and Ramada all have airport shuttles as of this writing. It's important to keep an eye on the weather during the winter months, however, as this area sometimes experiences very heavy snow that can shut roads down.
Services at this airport are also limited, but free WiFi is available throughout the facility. There is one restaurant on site, the Red River Valley Grill and Market, which also doubles as the standard newsstand and gift shop that sells snacks and beverages. It's open until the time of the final boarding call each day.
Pets are required to be in a carrier while inside the passenger terminal. They can be on a leash outside, and there is a designated relief area near the airline ticketing door.
