By Jennifer Grove bio emailSOUTH CAROLINA, SC (WMBF) Southwest Airlines is announcing the details of new fares, flights, and destinations to two Palmetto state airports Wednesday morning.The news comes after Southwest Airlines announced it would be opening service to the Charleston and Greenville markets.The airline says they chose the two destinations because of their mix of business and leisure travel and their strong customer bases; a strategy that may have kept the airline from putting down roots in the Grand Strand.”Their business plan relies mainly on business travel and obviously Charleston and Greenville both have more business travel than Myrtle Beach,” Director of the BB Center for Economic Development Gary Loftus explained, also noting the season nature of air travel in Myrtle Beach.”My guess is with our proximity to Charleston and just the type of traveler we have I not sure we would be a good fit,” Myrtle Beach International spokesperson Lauren Morris said. “Not to say plans couldn change; never say never.”Morris says while they will be waiting to hear the announcement concerning flight scheduling, she does not feel like flight times alone will make the new services in Charleston more of a draw for Myrtle Beach passengers.”When you looking at a carrier like Southwest where it low cost driven, people will accommodate their schedules to take advantage of the fares,” she explained, adding that business travelers tend to be more schedule conscious and Myrtle Beach tends to have fewer business customers to be lured away.Among the bags rolling through Myrtle Beach International this week were Grace and Eli Cannell, newly married college students on Fall Break who say they are big fans of Southwest Airlines.”Their destinations are like first on our priority list just because of our finances,” Eli Cannell explained.”It a brand, it an airline people are familiar with, they have a lot of brand loyalty,” Morris acknowledged. “But just because you have Southwest or you don have Southwest it not a deal breaker for your market.”The Cannells are proof since they say certain destinations, like Myrtle Beach, can warrant breaking their loyalty if they are able to find a competitive fare.”Just why not use Spirit?” Ian wife Grace suggested. 6.
