Minnesota-based leisure carrier Sun Country is joining airlines across the country by announcing new routes that will begin this summer.
These new routes will give travelers more options for reaching popular tourist destinations such as Cancún (CUN), Las Vegas (LAS), and Reno-Tahoe (RNO), where the airline’s striking orange-and-blue livery will be seen for the first time.
“We’re excited to offer travelers affordable access to exciting new destinations including Lake Tahoe, one of the most beautiful landscapes of the Western U.S.,” said Grant Whitney, Chief Revenue Officer of Sun Country Airlines.
Additionally, the leisure airline is extending its current summer schedule through mid-December 2022, providing more opportunities for a getaway.
Let’s dive into where these new routes are headed as well as what you can expect when flying Sun Country.
Sun Country’s New Routes
Sun country’s focus is connecting those living in the Twin Cities area and the greater Midwest to popular leisure destinations around the Caribbean, Central America, and, of course, elsewhere within the U.S.
The airline’s new routes, taking off from June 1, 2022, continue the airline’s primary mission of providing flights to destinations that see a lot of tourists.
The details of each of the routes are as follows:
|From||To||Start Date||Frequency |
|Green Bay (GRB)||Las Vegas (LAS)||September 9, 2022||Mondays and Fridays|
|Harlingen, Texas (HRL)||Cancún (CUN)||June 1, 2022||Wednesdays and Saturdays|
|Madison (MSN)||Las Vegas (LAS)||September 9, 2022||Mondays and Fridays|
|Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP)||Reno-Tahoe (RNO)||September 1, 2022||Thursdays and Sundays|
Even though Sun Country is technically a low-cost airline, passengers can expect a combination of a low-cost and full-service experience, markedly different than what you’d encounter on a competitor such as Spirit.
“We look forward to welcoming guests onboard to enjoy our many amenities like free inflight entertainment, complimentary nonalcoholic beverage service, and comfortable reclining seats with in-seat power on their way to their next great vacation,” said Whitney.
The new routes will be operated by either the airline’s Boeing 737-800 or Boeing 737-700 aircraft.
Both jets are laid out in an all-economy configuration, though the number of seats differs by aircraft type. The 737-800 has a capacity of 186 passengers, 48 more than the smaller -700 variant.
Sun Country is adding more routes from its Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) hub and introducing Reno-Tahoe (RNO) to its route network. Flights are available to book now and will continue into the fall for those wishing to travel after the regular summer vacation period.
