Getting to Myrtle Beach, the Golf Capital of the World, keeps getting easier, especially for players in the nation’s golf-crazed Midwest. Southwest Airlines announced it’s adding year-round service to Myrtle Beach from 10 markets.
Beginning May 23, 2021, passengers will be able to fly direct to Myrtle Beach from: Baltimore, MD (BWI), Chicago, IL (MDW), and Nashville, TN (BNA); and additional nonstop service to Dallas, TX (DAL) and Pittsburgh, PA (PIT) will begin May 29. Service to five (5) additional destinations will launch on June 6, 2021: Atlanta, GA (ATL), Columbus, OH (CMH), Indianapolis, IN (IND), Kansas City, MO (MCI) and St. Louis, MO (STL). In addition to their nonstop offerings, Myrtle Beach is accessible on Southwest Airlines this summer from 50+ cities through same-plane and connecting itineraries.
Five of the 10 markets Southwest will be offering nonstop flight to Myrtle Beach from are located in America’s Central Time Zone, providing golfers easy and cost effective (golf bags fly free!) access to the game’s most popular destination.
“We continue to tailor our schedule with added flights to address closer-in demand for leisure destinations while making foundational additions to our map that position our network for the future,” Andrew Watterson, Southwest Airlines Executive Vice President & Chief Commercial Officer said. “For Myrtle Beach, we know the arrival of our two bags fly free*—with a golf bag able to count as one of those—will encourage visitors to fly Southwest instead of drive, and consider a quicker trip with us and our value propositions of bags fly free, golf bags fly free, low fares, and flexible policies. We’re so pleased to share our Heart with them in time to bring visitors this summer.”
