MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – The Myrtle Beach International Airport has enacted its contingency parking plan using overflow parking spaces because of increasing passenger numbers coming into the airport. They urge passengers to take extra time to look for parking in the coming days.

Parking through the weekend is expected to reach capacity, and MYR wants anyone planning to use the parking facilities to plan accordingly. "We are asking departing passengers on flights this weekend allow themselves extra time to locate a parking space," said Michael La Pier, Director of Airports for Horry County Department of Airports. "Additionally, if departing passengers can arrange for transportation to the airport, it is strongly encouraged."

Beginning on May 22, 2013, additional parking will be available in front of the old terminal building enabling the airport to keep pace with an anticipated strong summer season.

The Myrtle Beach International Airport is a full-service facility that serves as the gateway to the Grand Strand.

The Myrtle Beach International Airport says they are committed to providing a clean, safe passenger-friendly facility that is capable of meeting current travel needs while aggressively planning for future aviation requirements of visitors to the Myrtle Beach area.
