Myrtle Beach Direct Air Celebrates Third Anniversary with Great Air Fare from PIT


  • Family Ties program offers round trip fares at $140

“This is a great opportunity for families to make plans for affordable vacations and more frequent visits with friends and family,” said Direct Air CEO Judy Tull, “We wanted to do something special to celebrate our third year of service and what better way than giving our clients and families something that will provide savings.”

The Family Ties program allows travelers to purchase up to 20 deeply discounted flight certificates without specifying travel dates or passengers names. The certificates make excellent gifts and can be used by the purchaser as well as friends and family. Family Ties certificates will be available for purchase for $140 round trip inclusive of taxes online at through Wednesday, March 25th.

“The Allegheny County Airport Authority congratulates Myrtle Beach Direct Air on the start of its third year of great service and would like to thank the airline for making Pittsburgh International Airport part of its innovative Family Ties program,” said Bradley D. Penrod, ACAA Executive Director and CEO. “The airline has been quite a success here and is a favorite of southwestern Pennsylvania residents looking to take a beach vacation, a golf getaway or visit friends and family.”

Vouchers are valid through December 31, 2009 and are useable in any of the cities currently served by Direct Air. Myrtle Beach Direct Air began service at Pittsburgh International Airport in March 2007. Myrtle Beach, the golf capital of the world, is the home of some of the highest quality golf courses in the nation. Golf Digest Magazine recently named 10 of Myrtle Beach’s courses to the “Top 100 Public Golf Courses in America” list for the 2007 -- 2008 season. Aside from golf, Myrtle Beach also offers an array of activities to suit any need; from attractions like the Ripley’s Aquarium, Hard Rock Amusement Park, and NASCAR to shopping and water sports.

Direct Air flies Airbus A-320 aircraft leased from Virgin America. The aircraft offers luxury and excellent service, with eight first-class seats and 141 coach-class all-leather seats, plasma television, touch service screens, satellite radio and telephone and computer connectivity at each seat. The flights are staffed by Virgin America flight crews.

Tickets can be purchased by going to or by calling 1-877-432-DIRECT (3473).

Through May 21, Myrtle Beach Direct Air flights operate on Thursdays and Sundays. Beginning May 22 through September 5, the Myrtle Beach flights operate five days a week (except Tuesday and Wednesday) from Pittsburgh International Airport.
