Sun Country Airlines celebrates first flight between ILM and Minneapolis-St Paul
WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - On Thursday, June 1, the inaugural flight between Wilmington International Airport and Minneapolis-St Paul International Airport took off.
It’s also the first flight out of ILM for Sun Country Airlines. The flights will happen twice a week through Labor Day weekend.
WECT talked to one passenger who has been waiting for a direct flight like this one to happen for decades.
“Well, I am very excited to be here because I’m from Minnesota. I’ve made this trip for 40-some years. Never from point A to point B nonstop so this is a wonderful day,” said passenger Greg Stier.
Sun Country Airlines is based in Minnesota and flies in and out of more than 90 airports across the country.
