“MYRTLE BEACH — Canadian golfers and vacationers will have another option for getting to the Grand Strand when WestJet Airlines starts flying to Myrtle Beach this week. The flights, which start Thursday, will run twice a week between Myrtle Beach International Airport and Toronto Pearson International Airport.The additional flights should help the local golf and tourism industries, leaders have said, by trimming what usually is a 16-hour-plus drive into a roughly two-hour flight. Canada is the top international market for Grand Strand tourism, and the area has long celebrated that relationship with the annual Canadian-American Days festival in March.”
