Hector International Airport (FAR)

Overview

Located three miles (5km) northwest of Fargo, Hector International Airport is the primary airport for North Dakota and northern Minnesota. A small airport, most of the flights to Hector International Airport are short trips from nearby Minneapolis.

However, there are limited flights to Las Vegas, Chicago, Denver, Salt Lake City, Phoenix, Orlando, and Los Angeles. The airport's facilities are basic, although it does contain facilities for both domestic and international flights.

There is only one gift shop and one restaurant in the terminal. Indeed, Hector International Airport is loaded with small town charm and friendly staff members may even hold a flight if queues at the security are slow.

Hector International Airport has the macabre distinction of being the intended destination of the flight that Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and the Big Bopper were on when it crashed coming from Clearwater, Iowa, in 1959.

Location

The airport is three miles (5km) northwest of Fargo.

Getting to the city

There is no public transport from the airport into Fargo. However, many local hotels will arrange transfers by advance request. Jefferson Bus Lines and Amtrak provide intercity bus services from downtown Fargo.
