Spirit Announces Direct Flights from Chicago to Myrtle Beach

By • Dec 22, 2008

Even falling snow and freezing temperatures couldn’t dampen the spirits of Chicago golfers this week, as news hit that Spirit Airlines would soon offer a daily non-stop service to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

The announcement on December 17 that the low-cost carrier will begin a seasonal service between Chicago and Myrtle Beach on March 1, 2009 and run through November 11 was received with sheer jubilation.

Flying out of O’Hare Airport, Spirit Airlines with their outstanding introductory offers will provide an affordable connection between America’s favorite golf destination and one of the nation’s largest golfing markets.

The Spirit flight will leave O’Hare at 2:15 CST everyday and the return flight from Myrtle Beach will depart at 11 a.m. EST. In May the flight from Chicago will leave earlier and depart in the afternoon from Myrtle Beach, providing golfers with more time to spend on the Links.
