Whatever Happened To Sunworld?

Tue Sep 24, 2002 9:45 am

i just realized that Sunworld hasn't served PHL in a while, whats going on? Has the airline totally shut down scheduled services or are they still flying to other cities besides PHL?

I was wondering the same thing. Just when PHL put signs around the airport for Sunworld, they pulled out. I guess small newspaper ads and occasional radio ads were not enough to overcome one random route -- PHL-IND (after BDL-PHL-IND was discontinued).

Odd to say the least....

According to their website, they are back as a charter carrier, except for service from Cincinnati to Grand Cayman...

There was an article about them in the Wichita Business Journal a few weeks ago.

SunWorld Airlines won't be coming to Wichita

Basically the article states they have abandoned their previous plans to focus on their more profitable charter services.
