Myrtle Beach has added its 10th airline carrier and opened golf’s most popular destination to a new part of the country.
Frontier Airlines, a low-cost carrier, will launch service to Myrtle Beach from three destinations – Islip (N.Y., airport code ISP), Trenton, (N.J., airport code TTN) and most notably, Denver (DEN) – in May. With the new service, Myrtle Beach now enjoys nonstop service from 45 destinations and 10 airlines, most in South Carolina.
Frontier is offering special introductory fares that begin at $39.
Trenton and Islip have long been strong feeder markets, and the addition of Denver will provide golfers from the Mountain West easy access to Myrtle Beach.
The Denver service, which begins May 23 and will fly on Wednesdays and Saturdays, will leave the Mile High City at 6:30 a.m. and arrive in Myrtle Beach at noon, leaving ample time for an afternoon round. The return flight will depart Myrtle Beach at 12:45 p.m.
Frontier’s service out of Trenton begins on May 21 and will fly Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, leaving New Jersey at 1:31 p.m. and arriving in Myrtle Beach at 3:25 p.m. The return flight will leave the Grand Strand at 4:10 p.m., providing ample time for a day of departure round.
The flight out of Islip begins May 20 and will leave at 11:40 a.m. and arrive at 1:21 p.m. With 10 courses located with 10 miles of the airport, golfers will have the opportunity to squeeze in a quick round upon arrival. The return flight to Islip will leave at 2:16 p.m. The Islip service will fly on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Frontier flies one of the youngest fleets in the industry consisting of Airbus A320 Family jet aircraft. With nearly 200 more new aircraft on order, Frontier will continue to grow and modernize its fleet to deliver on the mission to provide affordable travel across America. By 2026, the company will be in position to deliver “Low Fares Done Right” to more than 50 million passengers a year. Frontier’s young fleet also ensures that the company will continue to keep fares low and that customers will enjoy a pleasant and reliable experience flying with the airline.
Frontier is focused on offering customers real choice and the ability to customize their travel to their needs and budget.

The Works bundle is considered one of the best values in the industry and offers customers full refundability, a carry-on bag, a checked bag, the best available seat (including exit rows and Stretch seating), waived change fees and priority boarding for as low as $59 each way.
