FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MEDIA STATEMENT

In response to the recent news that Spirit Airlines will increase daily service between MYR and Pittsburgh from May through November, Brad Dean, president and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, issued the following statement:

"We are always pleased to see Spirit Airlines increase its service into Myrtle Beach, particularly service that extends well into the shoulder season. The more affordable air service we can get out of key markets like Pittsburgh, the greater our growth potential. This move puts us another step closer to achieving our goal to welcome 20 million visitors to the area by 2020. More visitors, particularly during the off season, translates into more jobs and a better economy. We value our partnership with MYR, Spirit and Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday to grow our respective market share together. "
