So, you live in Morehead City, and you’re planning a vacation that you don’t exactly want to drive to. Why not fly? I know what you’re thinking, you think you’ll have to travel all the way to Raleigh or Charlotte to get the best airport experience. But boy are you wrong, one of the best airport experiences is just miles away at Albert J. Ellis airport in Jacksonville NC!

The Best Airlines

Here at Albert J. Ellis airport, we have flights from two of the largest airlines in the United States, American, and Delta! American and Delta both offer tremendous service to their passengers and have passenger safety and comfort as their number one concern! Since we work with both airlines, we have made ticket sales super easy through the use of our booking engine, but if you’re more old-school when it comes to booking flights, you can always book your flight on American or Delta’s website!


Now onto what makes Albert J. Ellis stand out! We are the most modern airport in Eastern NC. We’ve recently opened an entirely new terminal, making it two stories with plenty of amenities to make your airport experience the best it can be! We have everything from Wi-Fi, Cafes, a bar, and so much more! Speaking of Wi-Fi, ours is complimentary! FREE WIRELESS INTERNET while you wait? It can’t get any better than that! And we have one of the most dedicated staffs to make your trip fast, safe and comfortable? We know you value your time, and we value you as a passenger with OAJ.


Everyone knows the struggle of having to wait forever to get through TSA, but fear not, when you travel with us, the average security wait time is only 5 minutes, unless it is during the holidays when things can take a little longer.

We also continually update passengers of security policy changes so that you know what to expect when you step foot in the terminal. There are no unexpected surprises with OAJ!

Always Growing

Since 2008 we’ve doubled in size, and we are to this date, one of North Carolina’s fastest growing airports. While we plan on continuing to grow, we also will strive to continue to exceed the standards we set for ourselves on day one!
