The number of people who flew out of Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport fell in May compared with a year ago, according to new figures from the airport, the Star Tribune reports. About 2.7 million people boarded flights in the month, a 1.5 percent decline from the same month a year ago, which is an indictor that the Minnesota economy is struggling to build momentum, the paper says.
In other airport news, the Star Tribune says Delta Air Lines recently tested a self-service turnstile that allows passengers to scan their own boarding passes.
