NEW THIS MORNING: ILM to add direct flight to NYC
WILMINGTON, NC (StarNewsOnline) — Wilmington International Airport is adding a third nonstop flight to New York City, at least for the summer.
Delta will add a seasonal early afternoon flight to LaGuardia Airport beginning April 8 and possibly lasting until October, Jon Rosborough, the airport’s executive director, said Tuesday.
Ridership on the two existing flights to New York is about 64 percent, lower than airport officials would like, and they are optimistic that the additional flight will help draw more travelers.
“The frequency is very important, and when I talk to the business people, that’s what they want,” Rosborough said.
New York City is the most popular destination for Port City flyers.
