One-year-old Myrtle Beach Direct Air will bring back regular passenger service to Rickenbacker Airport starting in March.

The move comes two years after Myrtle Beach-based Hooters Air pulled out of Rickenbacker. The airport, part of a former U.S. Air Force base, has served primarily as a cargo airport for the past couple of years after seeing a number of passenger airlines come and go.

The initial schedule calls for flights between Columbus and Myrtle Beach on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays, with one-way fares starting at $99, said Ed Warneck, airline president, while making the announcement yesterday at Rickenbacker. A promotional price of $79 each way will be available for bookings made through the end of this month.
