Since the current terminal opened in 1989, Wilmington International Airport has seen a number of carriers come and go over the years.
But in one form or another, including through commuter partners and airlines that they acquired, US Airways and Delta have been serving the Port City even before the airport moved passenger operations from its old cramped facility.
Other carriers that used to serve the airport in the past two decades include Midway, United Express and American Eagle.
Allegiant Air is Wilmington’s newest carrier, serving Orlando-Sanford. It also used to fly to St. Petersburg–Clearwater International Airport, although that service was dropped in May 2009.
Airport officials have recently been talking to a major carrier, probably United or American, about starting up service to Chicago-O’Hare International Airport.
