New Developments for the Myrtle Beach Airport Area of South Carolina

As one of the fast growing family and vacation destinations on the East Coast, the Grand Strand Area of South Carolina annually attracts approximately 15 million visitors.  And a large number of new residents are flocking to the area.  Some of the recent and planned developments for the area include the new International Technology and Aerospace Park that will accommodate the growing needs of the High Technology and Aerospace Industries.  The ITAP has been developed at the Myrtle Beach International Airport.  It is a 460-acre park that includes the installation of utilities, access roads, storm drainage and landscaping.  Construction is currently in place to build a ramp and taxiway that will connect ITAP to the airport.  Another new airline, Porter Airlines, which has been providing non-stop service between Myrtle Beach and Toronto since 2010, is expanding their service.  Spirit Airlines is also expanding service and flights  to the area, which service between Myrtle Beach and Baltimore, Chicago, Detroit, Pittsburgh and Niagara Falls.  West Jet will resume its non-stop service between Myrtle Beach and the Toronto area.
