“We are pleased to expand our innovative partnership with Landline to Wilmington Airport and the State of Delaware,” Joe Sottile, director of Shorthaul Network Planning for American Airlines, said. “This new service will provide local residents access to American’s global network, including convenient one-stop service to more than 100 destinations around the world via our Philadelphia hub.”

“We are thrilled to expand our network to Wilmington, allowing American Airlines passengers to clear security at their local airport, closer to home, and connect through Philadelphia post security,” Michael Sharer, Landline’s Northeast Operations Lead, said. “This service will provide a seamless, premium motorcoach connection to passengers with flights out of Philadelphia. Passengers can book their trips on AA.com by searching Wilmington (ILG) to their final destination.”

DRBA will work jointly with American Airlines and Landline on a final service agreement to support the start of service and associated terminal work.
