Spirit Launches Myrtle Beach from Manchester route

Manchester-Boston Regional Airport (MHT) celebrates the launch of its newest route on Spirit Airlines today to Myrtle Beach International Airport (MYR).

For the first time ever, MHT can offer direct service to the state of South Carolina.

“It’s an exciting time to add service in Manchester as Guests are looking for great leisure destinations to explore, like the beaches and golf courses of South Carolina, or the granite peaks and arts and culture of New Hampshire,” said John Kirby, Vice President of Network Planning at Spirit Airlines.

“Introducing the first nonstop option that connects the cities of Manchester and Myrtle Beach is part of our commitment to give Guests More Go to incredible leisure destinations.”

“The start of Spirit’s service to Myrtle Beach is a historic day for Manchester-Boston Regional Airport,” said Airport Director Ted Kitchens, A.A.E.

“We are excited to welcome those from Myrtle Beach who want to experience the natural beauty and wide-open spaces that New Hampshire offers.

“From our seacoast and 48 mountains with peaks over 4,000 feet to our 1,000 lakes and miles of trails, there is fun for everyone and a chance to discover a beautiful part of our country.”

This seasonal nonstop flight begins just in time for New Hampshire’s spring break and the busy summer travel season.

Myrtle Beach offers something for everyone—New Hampshire residents can enjoy the warm ocean waters or play a round at one of Myrtle’s many golf courses.

Whether they choose to jump in the surf or play on the turf, Granite Staters will enjoy a variety of leisure options made available through Spirit’s new daily flight.

“The Myrtle Beach International Airport (MYR) team is delighted to welcome the first arriving flight from Manchester-Boston Regional Airport today,” said Scott Van Moppes, Director of Airports at MYR.

“These new nonstop flights are an exciting addition to our current offerings and will provide vital air service opportunities to better serve the growing demand for travel between New Hampshire and the Grand Strand.”

Service to Myrtle Beach has been upgraded from the A319 to the A320, increasing the number of available seats by 25%.
