Spirit to Resume Early, Non-Stop Service to Myrtle Beach in 5 Markets This Spring


Spirit Airlines has put an early Christmas present under the tree for golfers in five key Myrtle Beach feeder markets.

Spirit announced that it’s moving up the start dates for its seasonal service in Chicago, Detroit, Latrobe/Pittsburgh, Niagara Falls and Charleston, WV, providing golfers in those cold weather markets non-stop access to Myrtle Beach in time for the spring season.

The daily non-stop service between Myrtle Beach and Chicago’s O’Hare Airport and Detroit Metro Airport will resume on February 14.

The thrice weekly flight (Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday) between Latrobe/Pittsburgh and Myrtle Beach will resume on February 15, as will twice weekly (Monday, Friday) service from Niagara Falls to Myrtle.

The flight between Charleston, W.Va., and Myrtle Beach, which will fly on s and Thursdays, resumes on March 2.

Spirit has serviced the five markets in years past but the routes often didn’t begin until May, missing the heart of Myrtle Beach’s peak spring golf season.

“This is great news for Myrtle Beach and golfers in Latrobe/Pittsburgh, Niagara Falls, Detroit, Chicago, and Charleston, West Virginia, five outstanding feeder markets,” said Bill Golden, Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday's President. “Spirit's decision to service those markets during the peak, spring season will provide players the opportunity to fly nonstop to Myrtle Beach and kickoff their 2013 golf season under warm, sunny skies in the Golf Capital of the World.”??

With an average daytime high of 61 degrees in February, the Grand Strand is a perfect late winter or early spring getaway for golfers in the Northeast. The average temperature continues to rise and is an idyllic 76 degrees during April, the busiest month on the Myrtle Beach golf calendar.
