Myrtle Beach S.C., is one of the cities benefiting from this week's announcement.
The 15-year-old airline currently has flights connecting Myrtle Beach and the cities of Allentown, Pa.; Fort Wayne, Ind.; Huntington, W.Va.; and Youngstown, Ohio.
Allegiant seems happy to expand it's service into Myrtle Beach, and it will mean more options for travelers to and from the Lowcountry.
“Allegiant’s business model is meant to be flexible,” Allegiant's Kimberly Downing said. “Right now, three of the markets are planned for twice weekly, and Columbus is three times weekly at this point. We don’t really expect that to change throughout the summer.”
In its 15 years, Allegiant has carried over 40 million passengers, many to Myrtle Beach.
Myrtle Beach officials were also excited by the news. Due to the new Allegiant air service, it will translate into tens of millions of dollars to the Myrtle Beach economy.
