Myrtle Beach airport makes push for routes

A Spirit flight arrives at Myrtle Beach International Airport.

MYRTLE BEACH — Myrtle Beach International Airport won't charge fees for at least a year to airlines willing to bring flights to and from certain cities at least five times a week.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reported officials want flights to Dallas, Minneapolis and Indianapolis. They want weekday flights to Philadelphia and are willing to reduce fees for that service. Flights are available between the two cities on weekends. Airport officials said airlines won't have to pay fees

for a year or two if they create those desired routes.
