Wilmington International Airport stretches it’s wings again. Chicago O’Hare International Airport was just added as a nonstop flight by American Eagle. Good news for Wilmington. Business travelers now have the option of flying out in the morning and coming home that night. ILM currently services 7 cities nonstop commercially: New York, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Charlotte (ILM’s hub), Atlanta, Chicago and Orlando. Talk is that Boston might become the next nonstop flight after meetings next month. The success of these flight patterns will hopefully bring more nonstop flights into our area. In addition to nonstop, ILM stays busy with flights to where ever you might want to go. We invite you to fly into our hometown and visit.
