FourFour Two: Wilmington Airport Transfer
Wilmington airport, the second largest in the world, is the destination for many international flights, and it’s easy to forget about it when the airport has only been opened for business for four years.
The city’s only airport terminal is just two miles from the town centre and the hub for international and domestic flights from the US and Europe.
But this week the airport is to be opened for daily domestic and international flights to and from Europe, and soon international flights will be able to land from the terminal, bringing the total number of international and international departures to over 1,000.
Wilmington Airport is also the first airport in Europe to allow people to take online reservations, making it an ideal location for international flights.
It has also been a major focus for international visitors, with over 5,000 visitors to the airport last year, with a third of them coming from the UK.
However, for the airport’s operators, the decision to open the terminal to international flights was a significant one.
“The airport is a global hub for the transport of cargo and passengers, and the terminal offers a significant level of connectivity,” said Wilmer Reiss, CEO of WestJet.
“This expansion is the result of our investment in new facilities, including our new hub terminal and the reopening of the Wilmer DDB terminal, both of which were first opened in 2019.”
WestJet, based in Melbourne, was the first major airline to offer international passengers the option of connecting to the terminal via a website, and has since expanded its services to include direct flights from Frankfurt to the US, New York and Singapore.
“We believe this expansion will increase international connectivity, create jobs and enhance our overall international reach,” said Reiss.
WestJet also runs a network of international flight hubs in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
“Our international customers now enjoy a number of benefits including greater access to services, greater choice of destinations, and improved security,” said the airline.
The international terminal has been designed by the world’s leading architects and the first international flights have been able to arrive there by land, air or sea.
“It’s one of the most important destinations for international passengers,” said John Ewing, chief executive of Wilmer.
“The new arrivals will be delighted to have the chance to see their loved ones and friends from around the world at the Wilmoor International Terminal.”
WestDelta, the company behind WestJet, has also announced that its services will now be able start to operate from Wilmower Airport.
“When WestDelta opened the Wilmar DDB Airport terminal in 2019, we were excited to partner with Wilmer to open our doors to international passengers and provide the service that we know customers want,” said WestDelta’s head of global operations, John Blyth.
“Our international connections will only grow as we work to expand our network of hubs around the globe, including in the UK and Europe, as well as offering our passengers in the US the opportunity to fly with us.”
The new airport will be the second airport in the European Union to be able operate on this model.
The city of Bilbao, Spain, has been allowed to operate on an open schedule since 2018, when the new terminal was opened.
