Porter Airlines will offer its first fall service to Myrtle Beach from Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, according to a news release issued Thursday.
Porter offers twice-weekly non-stop roundtrips on Thursdays and Sundays, beginning Sept. 8 and running until Nov. 20, according to the release. Regular one-way fares will start at $179 plus taxes and connections will be available in Toronto for Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City, Thunder Bay, Sault Ste. Marie and Windsor. “We’ve doubled the winter/spring service to four flights weekly, which shows there is considerable interest in travelling conveniently and comfortably to Myrtle Beach from Canada. This response gives us confidence that adding fall flights will be equally popular,” said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines.
Porter operated in Myrtle Beach for the first time last winter, and the current winter spring schedule continues until May 23. “Porter Airlines’ announcement that it will launch new fall service to the Myrtle Beach area is great news for our community and our Canadian visitors as we wrap up our 50th Canadian-American Days Festival. Over the past year, we have seen a record number of Canadian visitors coming to our beaches, and with the added support of fall service we look forward to continuing to foster growth in the coming year,” said Brad Dean, President and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, in the release.
