WILMINGTON — Wilmington International Airport is North Carolina’s fastest growing airport for the first three quarters of 2023, while also ranking third among airports across the nation.

A recent analysis shows between January and September, all airlines are showing positive growth at ILM and seat growth is up 32%.

Last year, nine new nonstops were announced at ILM. These new nonstops, coupled with the capacity growth on existing routes, led to ILM’s significant growth.

“Thank you to the four airlines that were here last year, American, Avelo, Delta, and United, for increasing capacity at ILM and to Sun Country for joining the list of airline offerings in 2023,” Jeff Bourk, ILM Airport director, said in a press release.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation estimates ILM’s economic impact to be $2.5 Billion.

“The increase in passengers and flights to and from ILM is a reflection of our community’s continued progress,” New Hanover County commissioners vice chair LeAnn Pierce said in the release. “Travelers see our county as a fun and vibrant place to visit, while businesses have realized the opportunity for economic success that our community offers. As a representative on the Airport Authority Board, I’m excited that ILM remains a key economic driver for our region, and we look forward to even greater things in the coming years.”
