Spirit Airlines connects Myrtle Beach to Indianapolis, Houston, and Kansas City

Spirit Airlines adds three new nonstop routes connecting Myrtle Beach to Indianapolis, Houston, and Kansas City.

The new routes start from May 2, 2019, just in time for a summer getaway.

Nonstop routes between Myrtle Beach and Indianapolis will operate three times weekly, while the routes to Houston and Kansas City will operate twice weekly.

Spirit is the largest carrier at the Myrtle Beach International Airport (MYR), with over half of all passengers flying on a Spirit flight.  The airline is now slated to serve 23 destinations from Myrtle Beach with their well-known affordable fares.  Between 2016 and 2019, the airline’s traffic in and out of Myrtle Beach International Airport is projected to grow by nearly 40 percent. 

“Myrtle Beach is an incredibly successful destination for Spirit Airlines and as the airline grows it only makes sense that we would continue our growth there,” said Matt Klein, Spirit Airlines’ Senior Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer.  “Myrtle Beach has proven to be a highly desirable leisure destination, offering beautiful beaches and world-renowned golf courses.  Now even more of our guests can experience all of what the area has to offer.”

Scott Van Moppes, Director of Airports for Horry County said, “With this announcement of flights between Indianapolis, Houston, Kansas City and the Myrtle Beach International Airport, we welcome nonstop air service to our 50th market! When passengers travel they search for convenient and affordable flights. Now that you can fly from 50 different airports to Myrtle Beach, getting here has never been easier. Reaching the BIG 50 is a significant milestone, unmatched in the State of South Carolina, and we thank Spirit for its continued commitment to MYR and the entire Grand Strand.”
