Sun Country announces 4 new routes out of MSP Airport

The budget airline says fares will start at $59 one-way, before fees and tax.

Sun Country continues to expand its routes from Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, launching four new seasonal flights on Tuesday.

The summer routes, which start in May 2020, will take travelers to Baltimore-Washington International in Maryland, Bozeman Yellowstone International in Montana, Cleveland Hopkins in Ohio, and Portland International Jetport in Maine.

The budget airline, which is based out of MSP, says rewards members who book a flight before midnight on Thursday will earn four points per dollar.

This year alone has seen Sun Country launch eight new seasonal routes from MSP in January, and two winter routes to the Bahamas and Florida this past August.

"I am very pleased to see Sun Country continue to grow air service at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport,” said Metropolitan Airports Commission CEO Brian Ryks in a press release.

"These four new routes demonstrate the airline’s growth to the east and west, not just to sunny destinations to the south. Sun Country will be the only airline serving Portland, Maine. Its low fares help drive demand by making it possible for more people to travel."

As well as the new routes, Sun Country says it's now taking bookings for flights as late as August 24, 2020, extending its schedule to allow travelers to book their summer vacations.

Here's a look at the new routes:

Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI): Service begins May 8, 2020, operating twice a week until June 4, when it increases to 4 times a week on Sundays, Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays. Fares start at $59 one-way before fees/taxes.

Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport (BZN): Service begins June 3, 2020, operating on Wednesdays and Saturdays. One-way fares start at $89 before fees/taxes.

Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE): Starts May 29, 2020, operating Sundays and Fridays, with fares starting at $59 one-way before fees/taxes.

Portland International Jetport (PWM): Service begins June 18, 2020, running twice weekly on Sundays and Thursdays. Fares start at $69 one-way before fees/taxes.
