Air carriers have canceled all scheduled commercial flight operations into and out of the Myrtle Beach International Airport for Friday. American Airlines and Spirit Airlines have extended cancelations through Saturday.
The airport stated in a release that air carriers have canceled all commercial flights operations Friday as Hurricane Florence approaches. It will be up to the airlines at this point to determine when to re-commence scheduled flight operations.
Charleston airport officials have closed their runway until at least Saturday, although Florence’s slow path could mean no flights through the weekend.
For commercial flight status updates passengers must contact their airline, not the airport. If passengers have flight reservations they should verify that their airline has their contact information (e.g., cell phone number and/or email address); the air carrier will notify passengers of flight changes.
