New Airline To Myrtle Beach?

My father owns a Signarama in Myrtle Beach and one of his employees tld him today that when I was there over the summer the employee and I were having a conversation about airlines into and out of MYR and apparently I mentioned a mejor carrier that would be likely to enter MYR. He said he was pretty sure it started with a "C" and he says tht they are entering the MYR market once the new terminal is finished.

To be honest, I'm drawing a complete blank and cannot remember what airline I was talking about. Apparently it's a big US airline (but that hasn;t been confirmed)

The only ones I can think of is F9 with a few weekly to MCO and maybe DEN, or B6, though I highly doubt it. Can anybody help me out? I know it's very vague and that's why I can't figure it out. Wikipedia has nothing and G4 is already here. Could it be Air Canada? Unlikely, but you never know...

I have no information that it will, but I wouldn't fall over in shock if Frontier turned up at MYR.

I thought that but when. I mentioned it my father said that it was a "big US Airline". Personally, I think AC. could do well in MYR. Maybe a Saturday flight to Toronto or something to give Porter a run for their money.

Maybe that big US airline Sun Country? LOL. But "C" is prominent in name, is a US airline, does like vacation locales, so maybe.....

Could be. Wouldn't be a bad deal. Maybe a few weekly to MSP, and some Vacation routes like PUJ, CUN, MEX, etc. once or twice a week.

That would be great, but I think they'll see how CHS works first. Personally, I think B6 could definitely fill two or even three daily E190s to JFK and a daily flight to BOS. NK can do it with little to no connections, so B6 could definitely do it. But again, I'll but they sit back and see how HCS works before they look furthur into MYR.

The "C" could have refered to Continental. Yes they are United now, but there are still alot of people out there still calling them Continental. MYR-EWR seems quite possible.

The terminal is about 55-60% completed. Though there is still lots of work to be done.

Sorry, I'll try to clarify.

My father owns the Myrtle Beach Signarama and I usually work there over the summer. One employee, Tim, and I were having a conversation about airlines that fly in and out of MYR, as he was going to Jamaica and was wondering how to get there. (He ended up going AA through MIA from CHS). I apparently mentioned a major US carrier that I thought would be likely to enter MYR. (I cannot remember which one). Apparently, Tim says that the airline I mentioned has announced that they will be starting MYR service once the new terminal is completed. I have no idea where he got this info, but Tim does know a lot of people around Myrtle Beach, so I wouldn;t be surprised if he got the info from somebody dealing with the airport and it is valid.

Hope that is more clear. Once again, I apologize for writing it so poorly.

if/When this happens, I'm predicting a similar setup to CHS.

3x daily to BWI (expect using the older, lower density 737s with 137 seats. They use the 143-seaters on two of the three CHS-BWI flights)
1-2x daily MDW
1x daily Wight Amendment city (for some reason STL comes to mind over HOU or BNA)
MAYBE a Florida route (But thats a big MAYBE)

BNA wouldn't constitue a Wright Ammendment city. TN is not one of the states.

FLY

I'd LOVE WN to start service from BWI. It takes 7.5 hours to drive there!

Much like MCO years ago, MYR is becoming a year round destination due to the
zillions of golf courses in the area.

We have great golf down here. I know MYR has started to take the path of ISP and many other smaller airports in offering incentives to airlines to serve here. Now, especially with the new terminal, MYR is sure busting its hump to get new airlines and new service!
