MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - New flights to Myrtle Beach International Airport have resulted in a busier than usual first half of the year for the airport.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reported (https://bit.ly/1rqm7iP) that almost 418,000 passengers flew into the airport from January to June, up about 7 percent compared to the first six months of June 2013. The airport released those statistics Friday.

The increase came despite declines in January and February compared to 2013, leading to the airport’s May ever.

In June, more than 105,000 passengers flew into the airport, a jump of 9 percent over the same month last year. An airport spokesman says that’s largely because of growth in traffic on Allegiant Air, which established a temporary hub at the airport for the summer.
