Sun Country Airlines will allow travelers to book flights more than a year in advance to accommodate postponed spring break plans.
The Twin Cities-based airline will open up flights through April 2022, it announced Thursday. The adjustment will allow travelers who have to postpone trips due to COVID-19 to use their vouchers before they expire, according to the airline.
Travelers should charge or postpone their flight plans at least 60 days in advance to avoid fees.
Twin Cities flight tips site Thrifty Traveler's Editor-in-Chief Kyle Potter suggests the airline is trying to pick up some winter 2021/22 bookings by extending the window.
“We are committed to providing exceptional service and great value,” said Sun Country Airlines CEO Jude Bricker in a statement.
"We believe by extending our current schedule out to 2022, we’re able to provide customers the time and convenience they need to re-book any postponed travel or plan new trips to experience our many vacation destinations, at a time when they feel comfortable flying again.”
Sun Country Airlines recently announced shuttle service in partnership with Landline Select to the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airline from five new cities in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
The airline also added nine new flights out of MSP last month, including to major cities and more COVID-friendly destinations, for a total of 63 destinations.
