The Myrtle Beach airport serves Horry County and the surrounding areas with seven airlines and daily nonstop flights to over 35 cities. Eight rental car companies and several restaurants are also onsite.
Since the 1930s when the city purchased land for a municipal airport, the idea of a regional air terminal has always been a dream of community leaders. During World War II, the small, city-owned facility became part of the Myrtle Beach Air Force Base and was used in the war effort.
In 1975, the runway and original terminal were constructed and were shared by the city and the base. When the base closed in 1993, the facilities were returned to the city and to Horry County to operate.
On April 1, 1996 the airport was renamed Myrtle Beach International Airport and in 2013, a multi-million-dollar expansion project was completed, adding an additional 274,000 square feet of ticketing and baggage areas. The airport symbol is MYR.
One of the fastest growing airports in the country, growth has been steady for the past several years. Over 1.2 million travelers pass through the gates annually.
As a full-service airport, Myrtle Beach International offers short and long-term parking, plus a cheaper Credit Card Parking option, rental cars, a cell phone lot if you’re awaiting an arrival, and restaurants and shopping.
There are seven airlines serving the airport:
These carriers fly to the following destinations:
Short Term Parking is free for the first 15 minutes and $3.00 after that up to 30 minutes. From there it’s $1.00 for each additional 15 minutes up to a maximum of $21.00.
Long Term Parking is a flat $12.00 per day, but an alternative money-saver is the Credit Card Parking lot. Here you’ll find a daily rate of $9.00.
Handicapped parking is free in both the Short Term and the Long Term lots, but is not available in the Credit Card Lot.
Parking or standing in from of the terminal building is not allowed.
