In light of the coronavirus crisis Spirit Airlines is canceling all flights into Myrtle Beach International Airport. Spirit is one of the main airlines traveling to and from Myrtle Beach, and Airport Director Scott Van Moppes has said the decision to suspend flights could extend all the way into May.
Myrtle Beach Online reports that as of Thursday April, 2nd most flights into the Grand Strand have already been cancelled. A select few flights, mostly to Atlanta and Charlotte, North Carolina, are still scheduled. The airport issued a statement on their website, stating, “Similar to disaster response during hurricanes, MYR will remain open and operational as airports are classified as essential infrastructure. It is important that airports remain open for County emergency logistics, including delivery of supplies.” As this situation evolves, passengers are encouraged to check with their airlines regarding the status of flights.
