Holiday travel flights look good at Myrtle Beach Airport

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - If you were expecting major holiday flight delays, you are in luck.

"No one is in this space at all,” said Renee Pimienta, who was at MYR early. “Oh man, I don't believe this."

MYR may be one of the few airports in the country with no TSA line. Employees at the airport said holiday travel at MYR has been a breeze for the last couple of years. But like other flyers this morning, Pimienta headed to the airport early because she expected major delays.

"We were told by a lot of different companies on television to get to your flights early because there was going to be a lot of people at the airports and stuff. So I guess we're eight hours early."

Employees said they saw a rush early Wednesday morning between 5 a.m. and 9 a.m., and it has been pretty clear Wednesday afternoon, but may pick up again this evening when people are getting off work.

As of right now we’ve only seen one flight delayed, but there are several more flights heading out later this evening. If you're flying tonight - you're still urged to get to the airport a little early.

Employees also said parking will not be an issue today, and if you have to park farther out, golf carts are readily available to help get you and your bags inside.

Just because TSA looks clear right now doesn't mean it's going to look like this all day. You still want to get to the airport a little early just to be on the safe side.
