“Based on seat capacity and the number of airlines operating we expect May to be very busy month at the Myrtle Beach International Airport” said Scott Van Moppes, director of airports. “As passenger levels continue to increase we are experiencing a record level of vehicles in our parking lots, increased wait times at the TSA checkpoint and more people than ever before in the terminal. To accommodate MYR’s phenomenal growth, while striving to provide an exceptional
passenger experience, several new dining options have been added, TSA has increased staffing and the number of security checkpoint lanes and airport will be introducing additional parking spaces in the very near future. As passengers levels continue to increase we strongly encourage the traveling public to arrive at the airport two‐hours prior their scheduled departure time or risk missing their flight.”
