If you’ve been waiting for low rates on airline flights to and from Myrtle Beach your time may have come. Frontier Airlines is offering 35 new routes and four new cities of which Myrtle Beach SC is one of. The other three cities are Birmingham, Alabama; Savannah, Georgia; and Branson, Missouri.
Frontier Airlines, a Denver-based airline company, will start operating out of Myrtle Beach International Airport, with some flights starting as low as $39 each way! The first three cities with non-stop flights from Myrtle Beach are Islip, New York; Trenton, New Jersey; and Denver, Colorado. This will make a huge impact for many people on whether they can afford to vacation at all.
Flights begin in late May 2018 for Myrtle Beach, with Islip flight service beginning May 20, Trenton flights beginning on the 21st and Denver on the 23rd. Introductory fares start at $39 each way for flights on select days through Aug. 11, 2018, as long as tickets are purchased before midnight Feb. 12, 2018.
Kirk Lovell, Director of Air Service and Business Development, Horry County Department of Airports says “The demand from those markets to Myrtle Beach and actually the demand from here to those locations, it’s very strong.” Then added, “And because we’ve not had non-stop air service before, we’ve been missing a huge opportunity.”
Lovell claims that MYR is one of the cheaper airports in the state, but Frontier Airlines Senior Legal Council Valerie Tyler said some fares at the airport were higher than average, making MYR a good choice for Frontier Airlines to be part of the expansion.
“We’re looking for unfilled demand and an ability to offer lower fares,” Tyler said. “We’re looking for markets where the fares are maybe a little bit high and we can slip under there and provide a lower fare. I know when I flew out here, I paid more than I will be paying on Frontier.”
Frontier is the 10th airline operating out of Myrtle Beach International Airport, which now has non-stop service from 45 different markets, Lovell said.
