Being a part-time South Carolinian, I'm always looking for cheap fares into Myrtle Beach from New York. It seems that MYR would be right up Southst's alley. 2-3x daily to BWI or MDW would be feasible, no?

It seems though, thqt people would probably fly WN to avoid NK. For instance, on June 21st, I am flying WN ISP-BWI-CHS and making the drive from CHS to MYR just to avoid NK and LGA. Also, wasn't DL starting LGA-MYR on July 10?
Yeah, I'd say with CHS so close that MYR will never see WN service. It's just not big enough a market and CHS will always leech the traffic anyway. CHS is in itself a very small station for WN and is a larger and less seasonal market than MYR.

NK provides atleast one flight a day year round to BOS, LGA, DCA, and ACY (which covers Philly in a half manner). ATL and CLT have MYR service via the legacy carriers.
On the east that leaves Baltimore and the Hartford area without a daily link. The Baltimore region is roughly the same size population wise as So. NJ. Most that I know from MD and NJ used to drive to Myrtle Beach, but apparently ACY-MYR works year round as it supported by golfers (from what I heared here). Atleast it makes sense that in the winter it's mild for golf in SC and just a 1 hour flight from ACY (and same would be true with BWI), so it's shorter than flying to Florida.
If ACY-MYR can work year round, I suspect a daily BWI-MYR could work, but I take it that alone wouldn't justify for SWA to be at MYR. NK might be fine with just being at DCA for the Washington-Baltimore region as well. I see that Vision Airlines has seasonal service from some cities to MYR, so maybe it would be the best shot for a BWI-MYR.
