Southwest will launch service to Myrtle Beach, S.C., on May 23. 

The South Carolina beach destination will be the ninth new airport Southwest brings into its network in 2021 as the carrier pursues a strategy of replacing some of the frequencies it offered before the pandemic on dense, business-centric routes with new, leisure-oriented offerings.

The carrier will fly to 10 destinations from Myrtle Beach. Thrice-weekly Baltimore service begins May 23 along with twice-weekly Nashville and Chicago Midway flights. 

Five-times-weekly Pittsburgh service and twice-weekly Dallas Love Field service also begin that week. 

Daily Atlanta service, five-times-weekly Indianapolis and Columbus service and twice-weekly Kansas City and St. Louis service will launch the week of June 6.
