How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Wilmington
These useful tips about airport security procedures will save you a lot of time on your journey to Wilmington:

  • Ensure your travel ID and boarding pass are easy to reach. You’ll need to produce them straightaway.
  • You’ll need to put your music on pause for a short while. Earphones and headphones must be taken off and placed in a tray to be X-rayed. The same applies to items such as keys and coins.
  • Ensure your electronic devices and laptop are easily accessible. These items need to be sent through the X-ray machine in separate trays.
  • Deodorant, toothpaste and other toiletry items in cream, liquid or gel form need to be stored in containers smaller than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). They also need to fit in a 1-quart (1-liter) clear zip-lock plastic bag.
  • Give some thought to the type of footwear you want to fly in. Slippers are great because they’re a piece of cake to slip out of when you’re doing the airport security checks. Try wearing some on your next journey!
  • The list of non-permissible items is forever changing. Have a look at your carrier’s official website to understand what is not allowed on board their aircraft.

How to find cheap flights

What is the best day to buy a plane ticket?

Airfares offered on Friday tend to be the cheapest, according to flight demand on Travelocity.ca in 2021. Purchasing your airfares on a Thursday or Saturday can also provide better value, however our advice if you’re looking to save money is to avoid booking on a Wednesday or Sunday. Our data shows that those two days have the highest ticket values on average, so keep this in mind if you’re browsing flight deals.

 

What are the cheapest days to fly?

Frequent travellers may already know this, earlier in the week is often the cheapest time to fly. Flights departing on a Monday are the cheapest of the week. Since flights towards the middle of the week tend to be more popular, this causes the prices to rise. This is why, on average, airfares booked on Travelocity.ca in 2021 were most expensive for Wednesday departures.

 

How far in advance can you book a flight?

Here’s the deal: It is typically possible to start comparing international airfares on Travelocity.ca up to 12 months in advance. However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out. According to our 2021 flight demand trends, last minute planners can still bag a bargain with some of the cheapest fares appearing 2-4 weeks prior to their travel dates.

*According to flight demand on Travelocity.ca from January to December 2021. Savings are subject to change and may vary depending on selections made.

Wilmington Flights & Plane Tickets

If your vacation requirements start with sunny beach days, delicious Southern eats, and quiet waterfront walks, put Wilmington, North Carolina, high on your list. This small coastal city has all the amenities of larger Jacksonville to the north and Myrtle Beach to the south, but without the crowds. Wilmington is best known for its wildlife attractions and natural beauty, like the Masonboro Island Reserve and Airlie Gardens. Factor in contemporary museums, inventive microbreweries, and some cutting-edge eateries, and it’s high time you book a ticket and catch one of our flights to Wilmington.

Transportation From ILM

If you stay in one of the hotels near Wilmington International Airport, you’ll have a home base where you can freshen up before exploring the city shortly after your Wilmington flight touches down. The airport sits directly northwest of the city limits—a breezy four miles from downtown. You can catch a cab or pick up a rental car at the ground transportation counters near the baggage claim area. Once you’ve secured some wheels, roll the windows down and cruise along the coast. If you’re a public transit purist, catch the Cape Fear Public Transportation Authority 207 bus from the Airport Boulevard stop at the corner of Airport Boulevard and N. 23rd Street. Downtown boasts easy access to the Riverwalk, quirky boutiques and restaurants, and several peaceful parks. With so much to do, you’ll forget you’re in a small town—until you notice the delightful lack of traffic on your way to sunbathing at Wrightsville Beach.
