WILMINGTON—Uber driver-partners are now officially authorized to pick up and rop off passengers at Wilmington International Airport.

Drivers now have a staging lot at the Airport where they can wait for passenger requests. The drivers will display U-Signs on the outside of their vehicles.

Uber worked with airport officials and customized the Uber app to minimize congestion at the airport and make the pickup experience quick and seamless for riders and driver-partners.

When driver-partners enter the airport, they’re placed in an electronic queue via the app, and can wait for requests in the designated staging lot. Requests are sent to the driver who arrived first, so there is no need to block traffic at the terminal.
