Porter Airlines starts first Myrtle Beach fall service

TORONTO, Sept. 8, 2011 /CNW/ - As summer winds down, Porter Airlines ramps up its first seasonal fall service to Myrtle Beach, S.C. Flights operating from Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport begin today until Nov. 20.

This is Porter's first fall service to Myrtle Beach after two years of popular winter/spring flights. It is the only non-stop route between Canada and Myrtle Beach, a popular destination for sun, sand, shopping, family holidays and award-winning golf courses.

Two weekly roundtrips are available between Toronto City Airport and Myrtle Beach International Airport. Flights on Thursdays and Sundays allow for convenient holiday weekends or extended stays and offer a convenient and affordable way to prolong the golf season.

This service also brings Myrtle Beach closer than ever to many other connecting Canadian markets, including Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City, Thunder Bay, Sault Ste. Marie and Windsor. Reservations can be made at www.flyporter.com or through travel agents.  Golf packages can be booked at www.ultimategolf.ca.
