Thursday, Feb. 25, 2013: Myrtle Beach’s new airport terminal is scheduled to open April 2 after a six-week delay. Crews are putting the finishing touches on the new 274,000-square-foot terminal, which will house new gates, more remote check-in kiosks for passengers and new restaurants for the airport including Nacho Hippo and Steak ‘n’ Shake. The terminal is expected to receive a certificate of occupancy by March 19.
"Everything is done. They are working on the little stuff,” airport spokesman Kirk Lovell said. “It’s definitely exciting. It’s going to be a nice way to welcome people to Myrtle Beach.”
The $118 million terminal was originally scheduled to open Feb. 19, but was delayed because of glitches with the delivery of some construction materials after Hurricane Sandy. Though officials had aimed to open before spring tourism heated up, golf promoters and Horry County leaders have said the six-week delay wouldn’t hurt the spring tourism season because visitors could still fly into the current terminal.
