Minneapolis-based low-cost carrier Sun Country Airlines has announced a slew of new routes set to commence in 2024, including new service to Canada.

“Sun Country prides itself on being the leisure airline of choice for MSP customers,” said Grant Whitney, Senior Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer for Sun Country. “We have more than doubled our nonstop destinations for customers flying out of MSP in the last five years and we are thrilled to offer these unique new offerings spanning the continent from Quebec to New Mexico.”

Let’s take a look at these exciting new routes that travelers have to look forward to next year!

Sun Country Expands Again From Minneapolis

Next year, low-cost Sun Country will start nonstop flights from its base in Minneapolis (MSP) to the Canadian cities of Montréal (YUL) and Toronto (YYZ).

In addition to the new Canadian service, Sun Country will add additional nonstop routes from Minneapolis to the following cities across the U.S.:

Most of the routes above will begin in June 2024 with twice-weekly service. However, it appears that Oakland flights will begin at the end of May, and service to Washington-Dulles will resume (the airline previously flew this route) in April with 4 flights per week.

Sun Country also noted that beginning in Spring 2024, its Houston flights will shift from George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) to Hobby Airport (HOU).

Sun Country Goes Head-to-Head With Delta

When these new routes launch next year, Sun Country will serve 104 airports across the United States, Canada, Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean — the majority from its hub in Minneapolis.

Sun Country is setting up a showdown with Delta Air Lines, which operates a large hub at MSP. In fact, Delta already offers nonstop service on most of the routes above. Sun Country must think it can beat Delta on price on many of these routes, which could spell good news for flyers based in the Twin Cities.

While it is a low-cost carrier, Sun Country can be thought of as more of a hybrid when compared to the likes of Frontier and Spirit, as it offers at least some things free of charge including water, coffee, tea, and various soft drinks.

Final Thoughts

Sun Country has announced several new routes that are set to begin throughout the spring and early summer of next year. It will no doubt be interesting to see how Delta responds to these route additions as it weighs how to defend market share in one of its most important hubs.

Regardless, more flight options for Twin Cities residents is great news, and we can’t wait to see where the airline decides to fly next.
