Vision Airlines Reboots with Eight New Flights Out of Myrtle Beach
There was a time when we were a little concerned about the future of Vision Airlines. The new kid on the block started to cancel some flights and terminate some routes, so we were thinking that their low-cost party was quickly coming to an end. Apparently that might not be the case, as the airline is still flying around, and even expanding.
Myrtle Beach seems to be their next big market, and they’ll even be using larger planes to get the job done. Boeing 737s are heading to the airport, as Vision Airlines looks to connect the coastal city with eight or so different destinations. If all goes according to plan they’ll be flying to spots like Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, and Toledo. Other options will include Nashville, Indianapolis, Louisville, and Springfield, Illinois.
To celebrate the new routes the airline was offering flights as low as $29 each way, but at this point it looks like the introductory fares have jumped to a pricey $39. The sale runs through June 13, and then things will jump another $10 before heading back to normal around June 20. So if you’re thinking about hitting the beach this summer aboard Vision, be sure to book sooner rather than later.
We’re rooting for Vision Airlines to succeed, but we just hope that Myrtle Beach doesn’t become the next Northwest Florida Regional Airport. That’s where the airline used to focus their attention, but now it’s not even on the route map.
