A new airline could be taking off from Wilmington International Airport . Even though the new airline wants tickets sales to soar sky high, they plan to keep the ticket prices low. Atlantic Coast Airlines is in the process of withdrawing from its affiliate, United Airlines to become Independence Airlines. They hope to offer low-cost flights here in the port city as well as other airports in North Carolina , including Raeligh-Durahm and Charlotte . I.L.M. officials say this new airline would make Wilmington a more desirable place to fly in and out of. The airline could be here as soon as next spring.
