Allegiant launches 5 new nonstop seasonal flights to Myrtle Beach

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Allegiant Air has begun five new, nonstop seasonal flights to Myrtle Beach, offering one-way fares for as low as $39 from Orlando, Florida.

The new seasonal routes launching to Myrtle Beach, and their latest pricing, include:

  • Akron / Canton, Ohio – June 3, 2015 through Sep. 13, 2015 with fares as low as $46 
  • Orlando, Fla. – June 4, 2015 through Sep. 13, 2015 with fares as low as $39 
  • Indianapolis, Ind. – June 4, 2015 through Sep. 13, 2015 with fares as low as $52 
  • Pittsburgh, Penn. – June 5, 2015 through Sep. 13, 2015 with fares as low as $52 
  • Clarksburg, W.Va. – June 5, 2015 through Aug. 17, 2015 with fares as low as $52 

“Allegiant is very excited to launch these additional new flights to Myrtle Beach, making the destination even more accessible,” said Jude Bricker, Allegiant Travel Company senior vice president of planning. “We are confident that the addition of our low-cost, convenient service will bring even more visitors and economic growth to the area.”

The new routes were originally announced back in February 2015. "Typically when Allegiant brings capacity in, they usually fill," said Kirk Lovell, Assistant Director of Airports for MYR, back in February.

The new routes are expected to bring about 26,000 additional visitors each year to the Grand Strand area, and Allegiant representatives estimate that will generate a $17.7 million economic impact in the total visitors spending yearly for the region.

“With Allegiant's expansion and the addition of five new nonstop markets, Myrtle Beach area residents and businesses have even more low-fare choices and flight options from which to choose,” stated Brad Dean, president and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce.
