International Airport Resumes Service to Myrtle Beach

Things keep getting better for Canadians who want to take a Myrtle Beach golf trip.

Porter Airlines will resume offering seasonal service from Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport to Myrtle Beach International Airport on March 9, 2022. The twice weekly flights will run through May 28, 2022, perfect timing for Canadians who want to enjoy Myrtle Beach’s idyllic spring golf season.

The flights will operate on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Nonstop service from Toronto will depart at 1:15 p.m. and land in Myrtle Beach at 3:30 p.m. Flights going from Myrtle Beach to Toronto will take off at 2:35 p.m. and touch down in Toronto at 5:05 p.m., leaving time for a day of departure round of golf.

The American-Canadian border reopened on November 8, following 19 months of closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Myrtle Beach, with its unmatched combination of quality and value, has long been a preferred destination for Canadian golfers.

Golf packages such as the Founders Group All-Inclusive, which allows players to choose among 21 courses, including Grande Dunes Resort Club, TPC Myrtle BeachGrande Dunes Resort Club and Pawleys Plantation, while providing lunch, two draft beers, and range balls, are among the most popular in golf travel.

Myrtle Beach’s subtropical climate – the area’s average high temperatures are 65 degrees in March, 72 in April and 80 in May – is ideal for Canadian golfers looking to escape the harsh Northern winters.

The resumption of service by Porter is a continuing trend for Myrtle Beach International, one of the nation’s premier mid-sized airports. In addition to enjoying South Carolina’s lowest average fares, Myrtle Beach enjoys more than 50 nonstop flights, including service from nearly every major city east of the Mississippi River.

Myrtle Beach is home to 90 golf courses ranging from Pawleys Island to just across the state line in Brunswick County, N.C., allowing players to enjoy a trip that fits any budget.
