Myrtle Beach is a popular beach and golf destination in the summer months.  Travelers from most cities typically have to make connections or fly on regional jets to Myrtle Beach.  Vision Airlines offers non-stop Boeing 737 service from a number of communities.

The Myrtle Beach area offers spectacular beaches, and a variety of hotels and vacation rentals.  For the active individual, Myrtle Beach is known for championship golf courses, plus there’s a wide variety of water sports, entertainment, and amusement parks.

Mike La Pier, Director of Airports, MYR, said, “We are excited to welcome Vision Airlines to MYR and we are confident that the markets that they’ve chosen will provide terrific opportunities for both Vision Airlines and our destination.”  La Pier added, “It’s been our goal, along with the Chamber and Golf Holiday, to continue to work to bring new visitors to our destination with increased air service. We are pleased to partner with Vision Air to introduce all that Myrtle Beach can offer to a new and much greater audience.”

David Meers, Senior Vice President of Vision Airlines, said, “Vision Airlines’ new, non-stop flights to Myrtle Beach are another step in providing low-cost air service to fantastic vacation destinations. The great golf courses and family-friendly beaches make Myrtle Beach an excellent vacation value.”  Meers continued, “Vision Airlines’ non-stop, big jet, Boeing 737 service will save passengers time and money, making flying a more attractive option for traveling to Myrtle Beach this summer.”

One downside to Vision Airlines is they operate a small fleet which can result in late flights if there are mechanical or weather delays.  In the past, its been reported the airline has also announced and canceled routes with little notice, not to mention reported problems of allegedly owing airports such as Northwest Florida International – Valparaiso (VPS) monies from PFC fees.  As such, it’s suggested travelers going to Myrtle Beach purchase travel insurance.

A proper travel insurance plan can go a long way towards protecting your trip regardless of what airline you fly or your destination.
