Spirit Airlines resuming W.Va.-to-Myrtle Beach service

Spirit Airlines is resuming seasonal flights July 2 from West Virginia to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Officials at Yeager Airport in Charleston made the announcement Wednesday.

An airport news release said the flights are scheduled to operate on Thursdays and Sundays through Sept. 6. The flights were supposed to start in April but were pushed back due to travel restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Myrtle Beach is a home away from home for many West Virginians,” airport director Nick Keller said in the statement.

The statement said Spirit Airlines flights from Charleston to Orlando, Florida, will continue on Saturdays and more could be added once amusement parks and other popular attractions reopen.
