AVP Announces New Non-Stop Service to Myrtle Beach, SC


Avoca, PA (April 24, 2024) – The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport has received word from Breeze Airways that they will begin non-stop service to Myrtle Beach this June.

“Team AVP has looked forward to the return of non-stop service to Myrtle Beach and we’re glad that Breeze Airways will provide that service to Northeastern Pennsylvania and our area travelers,” stated Carl R. Beardsley, Jr., AVP Executive Director.

“The additional service to Myrtle Beach is great news for Northeastern Pennsylvania business and leisure travelers,” stated Matt McGloin, AVP Board Chair. “The summer months will be great for our area’s beachgoers, and both September and October are great months for golfing in Myrtle Beach.”

“This new service shows what a great partnership that Breeze Airways and Team AVP have,” stated Lee Ann McDermott, AVP Board Vice Chair. “We thank our regional travelers for their overwhelming support of Breeze Airways at AVP.”

“We have seen great demand from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, as seen through our expansion of our Orlando service and this new flight to Myrtle Beach,” said Breeze Airways’ President Tom Doxey. “Myrtle Beach adds yet another great destination from AVP, which gives our Guests added affordability and convenience.”
