American Airlines will be adding daily nonstop service from the Wilmington International Airport (ILM) to Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) this year, according to a news release from the airline Thursday.

The flights will begin on Dec. 19, joining a list of routes the airline has added in the past few months, officials said in the release. DFW is American’s largest hub, with more than 750 daily flights to more than 200 destinations.

“Wilmington is an amazing destination for tourism and a growing economy. American is the largest carrier in Wilmington and we are excited to continue to grow in that market,” said Vasu Raja, vice president of Network and Schedule Planning for American Airlines.

American began Saturday-only service this summer to Dallas Fort Worth, through Aug. 18, and will follow with its daily service beginning in December, which will be year-round. The service line to Dallas Fort Worth was also offered by the airline during a two-week trial period over the 2017 holidays.

In December, the airline announced that it was expanding its service at the airport with daily nonstop flights to Reagan National Airport (DCA). Those flights began in May.

American also said Chicago O’Hare (ORD) will run daily nonstop service this summer. Officials announced in December that summer seasonal service to ORD would run June 7 through Sept. 4.

A third weekday trip to New York LaGuardia was added in April, according to ILM.

“On behalf of the Wilmington International Airport, we are excited and grateful for the nonstop service American Airlines is adding at ILM. We appreciate the community support which has resulted in the success of our air service," Gary Broughton, deputy director for the Wilmington International Airport (ILM), said in the release.
