Topsail Island Coastal Treasures with Onslow County’s Ellis Airport

Whether you live here, vacation, or travel through the Greater Topsail Island area, you encounter coastal treasures. Treasure Realty helps you find your treasure home or vacation rental. We also enjoy sharing our coastal treasures.

This week’s Blog from the Treasure Coast comes from guest blogger Mitch Sprunger, Deputy Director of the Albert J. Ellis Airport in Jacksonville of Onslow County, North Carolina.

“Greeting Our Guests with Hospitality and a Wag”

I make it a point during the craziness of a typical work day at Albert J. Ellis Airport to get out of the office and look at the terminal building and say hello to some tenants and customers. After grabbing a snack upstairs, I went down the escalator and was greeted by the wagging tail of a good friend.

This was Cody, the USO’s retired service lab who meets guests with affection and a sniff. I then said hello to his owner Mr. Smith, a proud veteran and volunteer who spreads cheer among the travelers and military members. The two Marines in front of me, one from Ohio and the other from California, laughed and enjoyed some R&R before their journey out west.

I’ve worked at several airports in my young career, but working here is the most collaborative atmosphere, where the users and tenants embrace and appreciate the travelling military members. If you haven’t already, I’d encourage you to come experience the hospitality of flying local at OAJ. You’ll save money, time and experience all the conveniences of the larger facilities without the hassle.

On top of that, you may get greeted by a lab in the terminal.
