MYR welcomes 1 millionth passenger of 2017

November 3, 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.
