Starting June 12 , Spirit Airlines will begin direct flights between Myrtle Beach and Orlando.
The competition is heating up with Spirit Airlines making the announcement on the heals of Allegiant Air announcing that they were beginning non-stop Orlando flights from Wilmington.
It’s a quick flight departing from Myrtle Beach at 11:05am and arriving at the Orlando International Airport (MCO) at 12:35p. You could be in Disney by 2:00pm!
Return flights are expected to depart Orlando at 4:15pm and with arrivals back into the Grand Strand by 5:45pm.
It’s great to see Spirit Airlines expand routes in the Myrtle Beach area. Currently Spirit carries more than 318,000 passengers each year to and from the Myrtle Beach area.
Not only will Myrtle Beach residents be flying south, but it is expected that the expanded route will give the Orlando residents a chance to check out our new, exciting theme park. Golfers will also enjoy the chance to visit our less crowded courses while staying in one of our great oceanfront condos in Myrtle Beach.
Who knows? It might just lead to a second home purchase of one of our great Myrtle Beach resorts.
