MYR Summer Season Surpasses Expectations

Passenger traffic at Myrtle Beach International Airport far exceeded expectations for the month of July, with MYR having the greatest number of enplanements of all South Carolina airports.

At MYR, total passenger traffic during July 2020, which includes enplanements and deplanements, totaled 168,481, an increase of 70% over June’s numbers, which totaled 99,285 passengers.

“July passenger traffic is a testament to the hard work of our destination marketing organizations (DMO’s) and the increasing demand for travel to the Grand Strand,” said Scott Van Moppes, Director of Airports. “We would like to thank the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce (MBACC) for their efforts in promoting our destination while encouraging safe travel so that families can continue to enjoy all that the Grand Strand has to offer.”
