BISMARCK, N.D. - A charter company aimed at getting North Dakota business travelers off the road and into the air will be tested this fall, officials say.

Point2Point Airways, which has received more than $2 million in federal and state money, would be based in Bismarck and provide charter service to cities throughout North Dakota, said John Boehle, a Grand Forks-based consultant on the project. Charter service also would be available to cities in Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska and Minnesota, he said.

Boehle said interest in the air service has been high among business travelers who now must drive between cities in North Dakota because of the lack of air service. "Time is money," he said.

City and state officials are slated to make an announcement about the airline's plans at a press conference in Bismarck on Tuesday, said Don Canton, a spokesman for Gov. John Hoeven.
