American Airlines Extends ILM Service To Dallas Fort Worth In 2018

By Christina Haley O'Neal, posted Dec 21, 2017
Wilmington International Airport has announced another expansion of services offered by American Airlines next year.

American Airlines is set to offer nonstop flights between ILM and Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) on Saturdays from April through August, according to a news release. The service line is an extension of the nonstop route the airline is offering during a two-week trial period over the holidays.

"Due to the response from the community, American Airlines informed ILM it will offer the non-stop flight during the spring and summer season in 2018," airport officials said in the release.

The holiday service will begin. Dec. 23 and run until Jan 7, officials said.

“We are very appreciative that American has chosen to offer seasonal non-stop service between ILM and Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) in the spring and summer," said Julie Wilsey, airport director. "In addition to offering more non-stop options for our community, it helps showcase Wilmington and our island beaches as a tourism destination during the peak vacation season."

The news comes three days after ILM announced the airline would be expanding its service at the airport with a daily non-stop flight to Reagan National Airport (DCA) and summer nonstop flights to Chicago's O'Hare International Airport (ORD), according to a news release Monday.

The year-round flights to DCA will begin May 7, and summer seasonal service to ORD runs June 7 through Sept. 4, officials said.

American currently offers year-round nonstop service between ILM and Philadelphia, Charlotte and New York-LaGuardia.

The American Airlines announcements this week follows news in November that United Airlines, now a third carrier set to begin service next year at ILM, added year-round nonstop flights to ORD and Dulles International Airport (IAD) in Washington, D.C.
