What time should I arrive?

TSA recommends that all travelers arrive at the airport up to two hours in advance of their flight departure time to ensure they have enough time to check in with their airline and go through security.  Please note, to ensure the security of airline passengers and the nation’s airports, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) began implementing new, stronger screening procedures for carry-on items at Wilmington International Airport (ILM) on April 14th 2018. The new procedures, which were announced last year, require travelers to place all electronics larger than a cell phone in bins for X-ray screening in standard lanes. Learn more about the enhanced screening procedures. 

What time does the airport open? If I have a 5am flight, do I still need to arrive early?

The ILM airport facility is always open. Since there are several flights that depart ILM in the morning, it is still suggested that you arrive at least 1.5 hours before your domestic flight, and 2 hours before any international flight. Airline ticket counters and the TSA security generally start assisting travelers waiting in line at 4am and 4:30 respectively.

Can you tell me the price of tickets or book a flight for me?

ILM staff is unable to book a ticket for you. You will need to contact the airlines directly in order to book a flight.  You can book a flight through Delta or American.
