Indianapolis Airport Remarks On Spirit Resuming Myrtle Beach Nonstop Flight

The Indianapolis Airport Authority put out the following statement today about the Spirit Airlines announcement linked below. 

“We’re seeing a trend of good news, and this announcement adds to that list,” said IAA Executive Director Mario Rodriguez. “Spirit last flew to Myrtle Beach out of IND in 2019, and resuming this nonstop route in May is just in time for the summer vacation season. We anticipate we’ll see more good news announcements in the weeks and months ahead as we continue to recover from the pandemic.”

Spirit Airlines today announced it will be connecting even more vacationers to the 60 miles of beaches known as the Grand Strand. The airline will launch nine nonstop routes to Myrtle Beach International Airport (MYR) this spring, introducing five new destinations, and resuming service from four other cities. “Lots of people are looking to head out to great leisure destinations like the South Carolina beaches this summer, and we’re excited to launch some new routes and resume others to help our Guests get their fun in the sun,” said John Kirby, Vice President of Network Planning at Spirit Airlines. “These new routes, in addition to our existing schedule, makes Spirit the leading carrier to Myrtle Beach.”
