Sun Country to launch first flights into Canada from MSP

The direct link between the Twin Cities and Vancouver launches next year.

Sun Country is making its first foray into Canada, with its first route from Minneapolis-St. Paul International to north of the border.

The budget airline has announced "for the first time in Sun Country history," it's expanding into Canada.

It will run nonstop flights from MSP to Vancouver International Airport starting this spring.

The seasonal route to the west coast will start on May 20, with twice-weekly flights from MSP on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

"Our expansion into Canada is the latest signal of the incredible growth we’re experiencing at Sun Country Airlines,” said Chief Revenue Officer Grant Whitney.

"We are thrilled to be adding Vancouver to our ever-evolving list of routes and believe there is significant demand for low-cost service to this great destination. We recently announced new seasonal summer destinations, and with this announcement, we have a great selection of destinations for Minnesotans to enjoy in 2020.”

Sun Country has several international routes to Mexico and a number of Caribbean islands, as well as seasonal routes to Alaska from MSP and Las Vegas.

But the Vancouver route will be its first in Canada since the company launched in 1983.

Currently, only Delta – via its airline partner Westjet – offers nonstop flights between MSP and Vancouver.
