Delta to add Additional Non-Stop Flight to Atlanta (ATL)
The Wilmington International Airport (ILM) announced Monday, February 9th, that the following cities will now be served by additional non-stop flights starting this spring.
• American Airlines to add an additional non-stop flight to New York (LGA) on February 12, 2015.
• Delta Airlines to add 6th daily non-stop flight to Atlanta (ATL) on May 1, 2015.
• Delta Airlines to re-instate a non-stop flight to New York (LGA) on June 5, 2015.
The re-instatement of Delta’s non-stop flight to LaGuardia will increase service to New York to 3 daily non-stop flights, adding the early morning departure time back into the schedule. Starting June 5th, non-stop flights to LGA will have the scheduled departure times of 6:00am (Delta), 10:55am (American), and 5:35pm (American). The additional Delta flight to Atlanta will increase non-stop service to ATL to 6 non-stop flights daily.
“We know that convenience is very important to our passengers,” Gary Broughton, ILM’s Operations Director stated, “and we are very pleased to announce this increase in service. ILM’s current non-stop flights to LaGuardia and Atlanta average 80% load factors and we anticipate that the additional flights will provide a much needed increase in available seats and departure options, particularly for our business travelers.”
Flights are available to be booked via the respective carrier’s website.
