Spirit Airlines to begin this new service in May

ST. LOUIS, MO (February 16, 2022): St. Louis leisure travelers are only one, nonstop flight away from the beaches and championship golf courses of Myrtle Beach. Spirit Airlines, on Wednesday, announced it will be connecting those travelers to the 60 miles of beaches known as the Grand Strand through St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL). The airline’s tentative plan, starting in May, is to fly nonstop routes to Myrtle Beach International Airport (MYR) two to three times weekly from STL.

“What a great way to celebrate Spirit’s one year anniversary of providing service from St. Louis Lambert International Airport,” says STL Airport Director Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge. “We look forward to Spirit once again expanding their routes here at this airport.”

“Lots of people are looking to head out to great leisure destinations like the South Carolina beaches this summer, and we’re excited to launch this new route and resume others to help our guests get their fun in the sun,” said John Kirby, Vice President of Network 1Planning at Spirit Airlines.

Spirit Airlines’ new service to MYR is scheduled to start at STL on May 26. The airline inaugurated service at STL on May 27, 2021. The airline serves the following markets from STL: Ft. Lauderdale (FLL), Las Vegas (LAS), Los Angeles (LAX), Orlando (MCO), Ft. Myers (RSW), Phoenix (PHX), Tampa (TPA) and Cancun (CUN).
