The Wilmington International Airport (ILM) has announced another expansion of services offered by American Airlines next year.
American Airlines is set to offer non-stop 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 non-stop route the airline is offering during a two-week trial period over the holidays.
“Due to the response from the community, American 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.
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 non-stop 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 non-stop 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 non-stop flights to ORD and Dulles International Airport (IAD) in Washington, D.C.
