Grand Forks International Airport (GFK) is North Dakotas busiest commercial airport and the Northern Red River Valleys doorway to the world. Its regionally known for aviation safety, customer satisfaction and passenger convenience. With flights arriving and departing around the clock, GFK is an excellent start to your vacation or business trip and its right in your back yard.The current passenger terminal at GFK was built in 1964. Outside security the terminal has a Northwest Airlines ticketing counter, a restaurant, a gift shop and a waiting area. After passing through security screening there is a small waiting area that serves the terminal's two passenger gates. Recently there has been talk of upgrading or totally replacing the terminal as it is structural and safety problems and leaves little to no room for expansion. Findings from a study commissioned by the Grand Forks Regional Airport Authority were released in early 2005. The study, which was done by Ulteig Engineers, gave the Airport Authority options for the future of the passenger terminal.
