Myrtle Beach will remain a vacation getaway destination for local flyers. Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport has announced a deal with Vision Air to pick up twice-weekly flights to the South Carolina tourist stop.
The service will begin in late May. The flights were in limbo after the previous carrier, Direct Air, declared bankruptcy and suspended service.
Vision Air has been covering another Direct Air route, temporarily offering flights from Springfield to Florida’s Gulf Coast.
Those flights end this weekend, but airport officials are still hoping to reach a deal for Vision Air to take over the Florida service permanently.
