SPIRIT AIRLINES TO OFFER NON-STOP FLIGHTS BETWEEN MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. AND ATLANTA, GA., BEGINNING MAY 1, 2010
December 10, 2009, Myrtle Beach, S.C. – Representatives from the Myrtle Beach International Airport, Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday and the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce announced in a press conference earlier today that Spirit Airlines will begin daily non-stop flights between Myrtle Beach and Atlanta on May 1, 2010. The seasonal flights will end November 10, 2010, and resume in the spring of 2011.
Spirit’s 145-passenger Airbus will depart Hartsfield-Jackson Airport daily at 10:20 a.m. and arrive at Myrtle Beach International Airport at 11:40 a.m. The Atlanta-bound flights will leave Myrtle Beach International at 5:00 p.m. each day and arrive in Atlanta at 6:20 p.m.

To celebrate the new non-stop flights to Myrtle Beach, Spirit will offer $9 fares on December 10th and 11th that can be used during the first two weeks of May.
Providing non-stop service between the two cities addresses an important need as the Atlanta area has long been one of Myrtle Beach’s top vacation markets. With a population of 8.2 million in the 100-mile surrounding area, the Atlanta population has been projected to grow at more than twice that of the United States. Georgia annually ranks as one of the Grand Strand’s top 10 states of visitor origin and Atlanta leads the Peachtree State with the number of residents traveling to Myrtle Beach. Atlanta residents also enjoy playing golf while on vacation. According to a recent National Golf Foundation study, the Atlanta DMA ranks 11th among all 210 DMAs for rounds played on vacation.
“We’d like to thank the Myrtle Beach community for their support and we look forward to continuing to serve and grow the Myrtle Beach market with our $9 fares,” said Spirit’s Chief Marketing Officer Barry Biffle. “But if $9 is too much, you can visit 3freeflights.com and fly your family for free**.”
“We are pleased to be able to provide additional air service to the community,” said Lauren Morris, marketing manager, Myrtle Beach International Airport. “Our team is grateful for Spirit’s commitment to Myrtle Beach and we are eager for the opportunities that service to Atlanta will provide for tourism as well as for the residents of our region.”
“Passenger traffic to Myrtle Beach from Atlanta has declined significantly in recent years,” said Bill Golden, president of Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday. “The addition of Spirit’s non-stop daily flight will provide Atlanta area residents affordable fares to visit Myrtle Beach, which will ultimately increase our market share of vacationing golfers significantly from the Atlanta market. The new Spirit flights will also satisfy the need of Myrtle Beach residents who travel to Atlanta regularly for business, attractions, sporting events and shopping.”
“Spirit Airlines has grown to become our largest carrier at Myrtle Beach International Airport,” said Brad Dean, president and CEO, Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce. “Adding this direct, affordable air service to Atlanta, one of the largest U.S. metro markets, will help grow tourism in the Myrtle Beach area and will also benefit the entire region.”
The Myrtle Beach International Airport now offers direct service to26cities in the United States and Canada with Spirit offering non-stop flights between Myrtle Beach, S.C. and seven cities; Atlanta, Ga., Atlantic City, N.J., Boston, Mass., Chicago, Ill., Detroit, Mich., Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and New York City, N.Y.
