MYR welcomes 1 millionth passenger of 2017
Fanfare and area dignitaries greeted one family this week as their plane landed in Myrtle Beach.
Unbeknownst to the group, family member Ronald Nevsimal was the 1 millionth passenger to deplane in Myrtle Beach in 2017. They were welcomed with gifts, including 1 million miles on Spirit Airlines, VIP passes to area attractions, and locally baked sweets.
This was the first year in the history of the airport that 1 million passengers have passed through MYR, a recently renovated and expanded facility.
