CASCADE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Gerald R. Ford International Airport now says Southwest Airlines will not be adding a nonstop flight to Myrtle Beach.

The airport’s official Twitter account, @FlyGRFord, tweeted Thursday morning that Southwest was adding the limited-time, nonstop flight between Grand Rapids and Myrtle Beach International Airport this summer.

On Thursday afternoon, representatives for Ford Airport said that tweet was a mistake and the route won’t be added.
