SIOUX FALLS – Officials with the Sioux Falls Regional Airport are weighing plans to build a hotel to accommodate more travelers.

The hotel likely would be on the north end of the airport.

The move is supported by Mayor Mike Huether, who spoke Thursday to the Airport Authority during its monthly meeting. Huether applauded the airport’s record bookings, new restaurants and ongoing efforts to reduce fares.

But he also encouraged officials to “reach even higher.”

Traveler Mindy Butman tells KELO-TV that she thinks a hotel near the airport would be a good idea, especially for people who drive long distances to get to the airport in South Dakota’s largest city.

Rick Barge of Sioux Falls tells KDLT-TV that the airport has to keep growing to keep up with customers’ changing needs.
