Direct Air - Service from Hagerstown to Myrtle Beach and Orlando

South Carolina-based Direct Air announced new air service to Hagerstown Regional Airport (HGR), with destinations of Lakeland, Florida and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Direct Air will begin providing 150 passenger jet service on Boeing 737-400 planes from HGR to Lakeland Linder Regional Airport in the Orlando West region of Florida and non-stop service to Myrtle Beach, beginning June 23rd.

            For months now, residents of Washington County and the tri-state area have been asking for air service to popular destinations in Florida and Myrtle Beach. Now through many years of talks and recent negotiations with Direct Air, service to Florida and Myrtle Beach is available.

          This says to the Community, we have things happening here, things are looking up and bigger things are coming.

            Stan Rydelek, Sales Director of Direct Air said the service is part of an overall expansion of airline operations, which has been flying non-stop and direct flight service to a number of destinations since 2007

             Judy Tull, CEO of Direct Air said “Direct Air has built a strong niche service developing underserved markets offering convenient service via smaller, secondary airports as an alternative to high fares and lengthy travel times at big airports.”

            Ed Warneck, President of Direct Air believes the Lakeland Region will be attractive to travelers because of its strategic location situated between Orlando and Tampa / St. Petersburg on Florida’s west coast. Passengers will find it as convenient and an economical alternative to the busy and stressful larger airports in Orlando and Tampa. Myrtle Beach has always been a favorite vacation and golf destination to the residents and communities surrounding Hagerstown.  The quick convenient one and a half hour flight will allow more time to enjoy their vacation.”
                As part of the opening celebration, Direct Air is offering passengers flying between these new markets a special introductory fare of “$79 for 79 Hours”.  This promotion begins on Wednesday, March 30th and will end Saturday, April 2nd at midnight.  Direct Air will begin with two flights per week, Thursday and Sunday. Reservations can be booked at www.visitdirectair.com or by calling Direct Air’s Reservations Department at 1-877-432-3473.
