Low-cost carrier Spirit Airlines announced Tuesday that it will be adding daily nonstop seasonal service from Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport to Myrtle Beach International Airport beginning April 25.
Spirit, based in Florida, operates Airbus A319 and A320 jets on its routes, with 145 to 178 seats each. The flight from Baltimore will depart at 10:45 a.m. The return from Myrtle Beach will depart at 5:20 p.m.
Paul Wiedefeld, executive director of BWI Marshall, welcomed the addition, noting that the Myrtle Beach route opens a new nonstop market and gives Florida vacationers another option for low airfares.
