North Dakota airports recorded their highest June boardings to date, nearly tripling the number of passengers moving in and out of the airport in Williston, one of the oil boom's main outposts.

The Associated Press reports that statewide numbers are up 9 percent over 2012.

The North Dakota Aeronautics Commission, according to the AP, says the Dickinson airport began jet service to Denver and Minneapolis in June and set an all-time monthly boarding record. The eastern airports also posted big numbers, says the AP, with Grand Forks up 1,546 passengers and Fargo increasing by 3,439 from last June.

In April, the state had seen a 10 percent increase over the previous year.
