Wilmington International Airport Releases Study Results for Terminal Capacity
Wilmington International Airport unveiled the results of its terminal capacity study at a meeting Wednesday evening. The study offers strategies for how the airport can accommodate a growing number of passengers and other potential challenges. Those strategies would include major renovations to the airport terminal, check-in kiosks and more.

The plan has not yet been given approval. Officials said it is still in the planning stages.
