Does anyone have any information on either of these carriers? Are they still in service? What types of a/c did they/do they fly? Destinations? Were they associated with one another?


Thanks

PropilotJW, that's a rather cryptic answer and doesn't provide the poster with any information without having to "read between the lines". Why bother to answer?

Myrtle Beach Direct air has a website at myrtlebeachdirectair.com and JetBlue Airways provides ACMI support for their charter operations. Myrtle Beach Jet Express is a now-defunct airline which was originally known as JetExpress and had headquarters in Atlanta, GA.

There are a lot of posts over the last 8-10 years regarding this airline. If you do a search, you may be able to find more information.

Myrtle Beach Direct is owned by Xtra Airways and used to have flights from upstate NY I think Plattsburgh and a lotta charters from EWR and a couple dailys from PIE and some flights from Ohio, and PIT my parents flew on them and there not to reliable as far as on tiime performance goes there head quartered in Nevada and have some pretty beat up 737s. But, there cheap and get you from point A to point B as long as you don't mind being delayed or stranded at the airport a couple hours. A delay is always likely with these guys. The company president and I believe owner is a lady and she is related somehow to the people or peoples that own the airline. A second rate airline would not suggest, they do not even have maintenance people they Totally rely on outside vendors, no correction, they have one mechanic.

Schedules are under review, and PIE/GPT have disappeared from their website booking engine (but still appear on website homepage adverts), but Wilkes-Barre has appeared in the booking engine, which would be a new destination for them

Actually, Myrtle Beach Direct Air contracts with Xtra for their flights.
