Myrtle Beach Airport
Thanks to a new terminal, more seating capacity and a larger list of available destinations, Myrtle Beach International Airport sees a growing number of passengers come through its gates each year. While nearly 80 percent of all Myrtle Beach visitors still travel by car, the number of visitors flying to the Grand Strand for their vacation is steadily increasing. Traveling here via airplane is now a popular option for visitors from Canada, as well as larger U.S. cities with direct flights to the area such as Boston, Chicago, Detroit, New York City, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. To help the growing number of travelers choosing to fly to the beach, we’ve created this guide to the MYR airport with everything you need to know from which airline to fly and how to get around, to where to eat and which lot to park in.
