MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF)-On Wednesday Spirit Airlines announced plans for new nonstop service from Hartford Connecticut's Brandley International Airport (BDL) to Myrtle Beach (MYR). Seasonal service is slated to begin April 27, 2017. Flights will leave MYR four days a week: Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday.
"The addition of Hartford, CT service will allow even more people to conveniently travel between the New England region and the Grand Strand," said Scott Van Moppes, director of airports for Horry County.
