In addition, North Dakota has four international airports.  Our central North American location provides a vital business link for east to west coast domestic flights in four hours or less.  Via air, you are just 60 minutes from Minneapolis and 90 minutes from Denver.

Northwest Airlines connects North Dakota with one-stop flights to its global alliance of 400 cities in more than 80 countries.  United Airlines, through regional jets, is setting the pace to Denver and Chicago hub service.

Two North Dakota cities are recognized as general-purpose Foreign Trade Zones (FTZ). The Grand Forks FTZ consists of 48 acres located at the Grand Forks International Airport and in the Grand Forks Industrial Park. The Fargo zone is adjacent to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection port of entry at Hector International Airport, and covers six sites on 1,026 acres of land. A Foreign Trade Zone can save you time and money.  That’s because within the FTZ, foreign goods are considered to be in international commerce and not subject to customs duties unless or until they enter the U.S.  In addition, raw materials, parts and components can enter duty-free.  Goods can then be assembled, manufactured or processed – and the final product exported – without paying custom duties.
