Delta’s last flight of the day is scheduled to leave around 2:40 p.m.

ILM says they have been in constant communication with the National Weather Service but right now, airport staff is preparing their equipment for snow and ice removal.

Their goal is to keep the airport open.

“It’s always disappointing.. we certainly regret when customers can’t get to their destinations,” said ILM Deputy Director Gary Broughton.

The airport urges customers to continue checking websites for updates on flights and cancellations.

They also advise those flying out tomorrow to arrive at least 2 hours earlier because TSA is having mechanical repairs done, so currently TSA security is down to one lane.
