ILM is an incredibly easy airport, however you will likely need to make a connection from your hometown. Delta flies into ILM, with all flights connecting through Atlanta. American Airlines is the main carrier and connects through Charlotte, primarily, but also has limited connections through PHL, LGA, DFW, and DCA. The airport is approximately 15 minutes from the office (FEC) and an additional 10 from the Wrightsville Beach hotels below.
Shell Island Resort (newly renovated since the hurricane. ocean front, individually owned condos. 10 minutes from FEC)
Blockade Runner (newly renovated since the hurricane. ocean and sound front. <10 minutes from FEC. Pictured below.) Use “Exec” as the promo code
Holiday Inn Sunspree (oceanfront. <10 minutes from FEC)
Hampton Inn (between Wrightsville Beach and FEC)
Hilton Riverside (downtown Wilmington on the river. 10-15 mins from FEC, 10 mins to ILM)
