South Carolina -based public charter airline Direct Air cancels flights
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) ' South Carolina-based public charter airline Direct Air has canceled all flights and there is no word on when they might resume.
Myrtle Beach International Airport director Mike LaPier told The Sun News all operations by Direct Air were suspended Monday night. He says the flights were canceled because of a fueling issue.
It's unclear how many people are affected. The airline serves 17 cities on the East Coast and in the Midwest.
There was no answer at Direct Air telephones early Tuesday.
Allan Pilkey was stranded in Myrtle Beach and told the newspaper he learned he wouldn't be flying home Monday afternoon. Pilkey was headed to the Niagara Falls, N.Y., on his way to the Toronto area.
He says he was not given any options or reasons for the canceled flight.
