Sun Country Airlines has confirmed 19 new seasonal routes will start this spring, eight of which will be from MSP Airport.

It's the largest route expansion the Eagan-based airline has ever announced, and comes ahead of the busy spring and summer travel season.

The budget airline is offering cheap one-way fares (before additional costs like baggage are factored in), such as a $49 one-way fare between the Twin Cities and Chicago O'Hare, and $119 one-way flights to Sacramento.

The new routes will be flown at least four times a week, with services starting in either April or May depending on the destination.

The new seasonal routes from MSP are:

Washington Dulles: Starts Apr. 25 four times a week, becomes daily June 10. One-way fares start at $69.

Newark Liberty: Starts Apr. 11 four times a week, becomes daily Apr. 29. One-way fares start at $99.

Chicago O'Hare: Starts Apr. 19 four times a week, becomes daily May 27. One-way fares start at $49.

Philadelphia International: Starts Apr. 18 four times a week, becomes daily June 3. One-way fares start at $79.

St. Louis Lambert: Starts June 7 four times a week. One-way fares start at $69.

Sacramento International: Starts May 23 four times a week. One-way fares start at $119.

– San Antonio International: Starts May 23 four times a week. One-way fares start at $89.

– T.F. Green Airport, Providence, Rhode Island: Starts Apr. 8 four times a week. One-way fares start at $79.

It should be noted that the prices for the seasonal services, which will continue until at least August, does not include extra fees like those for carry-on and checked baggage.

Sun Country CEO Jude Bricker announced the expansion at MSP Airport alongside Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey on Tuesday morning.

The company says that the new routes are part of its overall growth plan that will result in a 10 percent increase in its Twin Cities workforce.

“The new routes announced today create more air service options for travelers and more jobs for Minnesotans,” said Metropolitan Airports Commission CEO Brian Ryks in a press release.

"Sun Country has the second largest presence among air carriers at Minneapolis-St. Paul International, and these additional routes demonstrate our hometown airline’s commitment to growing its business here in Minnesota."

The airline is also expanding its services from other American airports, adding new routes from Las Vegas, Portland, Dallas-Fort Worth, Nashville, and San Francisco.
