Minot International Airport Director Rick Feltner has announced his retirement, effective June 3.
“Rick has been a great asset to the City of Minot as an organization and especially to the International Airport,” said City Manager Harold Stewart. “We certainly wish him well, but we will miss his leadership and experience moving forward.”
Feltner has been Minot’s airport director since May 2016. A native of southern Indiana, Feltner was the deputy executive director of Terminal One at John F. Kennedy International Airport in Jamaica, N.Y., prior to working in Minot. He was also previously corporate director of airport services of Delta Air Lines in Minneapolis.
“We’re thankful for Rick’s work and guidance during his time with us in Minot,” said Minot Mayor Shaun Sipma. “Through his commitment to the facility, the staff, and our community, Rick is leaving the Minot International Airport in a better situation than when he took over. We wish him nothing but good luck in the future.”
Feltner said he is moving back to Indiana to live on his family’s farm. A nationwide search will begin in the next couple of weeks to find Feltner’s replacement.
