WestJet Announces Non-Stop Service From Toronto to Myrtle Beach

02/18/2013

West Jet, Canada’s preferred airline, announced that it is beginning non-stop service from Toronto to Myrtle Beach International Airport. The twice-weekly flights will launch on May 2, 2013, providing Canadian golfers easy access to Myrtle Beach’s 100+ courses.

WestJet will fly from Toronto’s Pearson International Airport on Thursdays and Sundays, departing at 9:30 a.m. and arriving in Myrtle Beach at 11:35 a.m., providing ample time for an afternoon tee time. The return flight will leave Myrtle Beach at 12:20 p.m. and arrive back in Toronto at 2:14 p.m.

“Myrtle Beach is one of the most popular destinations for Canadian vacationers, with more than 90 kilometers of picturesque beaches, world-class golf and warm southern hospitality,” Chris Avery, WestJet vice-president, said. “The baggage capacity of our 737 aircraft is ideal for those travelling with golf clubs and our one free checked bag is popular with leisure travellers.”

WestJet, Canada’s most popular low-cost carrier, will also provide the rest of the country easy access to Myrtle Beach. West Jet services 30 Canadian markets and offers the possibility of morning service to Toronto for 97 percent of its passengers, meaning Myrtle Beach is accessible to most of Canada with no more than one stop.

Myrtle Beach is America’s most popular golf destination, annually attracting nearly a million players. With 100+ golf courses, including 13 that have been ranked among America’s top 100 public courses in recent years, the Grand Strand is equally popular among Canadian golfers as well.

“Toronto is one of the most golf-crazed markets in North America, and we are thrilled that WestJet is offering non-stop flights to Myrtle Beach, at golfer friendly times,” said Bill Golden, Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday’s president. “We are equally excited about the opportunity to connect golfers in other parts of Canada with Myrtle Beach.”
