SY To Announce 2 New Winter Destinations!

Fri May 11, 2012 1:55 am

According to their Facebook page, Sun country will be announcing two new destinations to their winter schedule! Guessing these do not have to be new to Sun Country, just new to their winter schedule!

Any thoughts on the cities?

New Orleans would make sense.

I'm hoping SRQ is one, they flew there in the past.

Per DOT filing...........Huatulco Mexico for sure. CEO hinted at Hawaii before. They have had DOD flights to/from OAK, LAS, LAX and MSP. HNL- MSP was crew only.

Hawaii would be nice! I wonder where they could connect it to make it work well? Either way, it would be nice!

Well, SY does have year-round service between MSP and SFO, LAX and SAN...   

Why not join the crowd! HNL's going to have to add a new ticket lobby and concourse soon with all these new airlines starting service there!

It would be nice to see Sun Country back at HNL flying regular pax again. They used to fly regular charters here with their DC-10s.

Now they mostly fly special charters (prisoners).

In April, they applied for LAN-PVR and MSP-HUX, so it might be these two routes

I noticed last night that apparently LAN-SAN is going to operate starting this month or next. I'm sure this isn't THE news but it's nice to see another route from Lindbergh Field. (Anyone know when this was announced or will actually start, or any other details?) All I can find is LAN-SAN flights starting this month, but no returns to LAN are there...
