Airline Profiles – Sun Country Airlines
Sun Country Airlines is a US-based charter and holiday airline which flies Boeing 737 aircraft from its base at Minneapolis St Paul airport in Minnesota.
The airline was founded in 1983 and for a long time flew Boeing 727s, and also flew widebody Douglas DC-10s. However, these were replaced through modernisation and a number of rocky periods and changes of ownership.
Aside from its base, Sun Country also flies from other cities seasonally, with Dallas Ft Worth a focus city. Its main destinations are in the Caribbean, Mexico, and the US east and west coasts.
