Sun Country woos Duluth, Mankato travelers with shuttles to MSP Airport

The airline announced the new direct services this week.

Sun Country is making a play for travelers in the Mankato and Duluth areas by launching a direct bus service between the cities and MSP Airport.

The budget airline announced it's teaming up with a new shuttle company called Landline to provide nonstop buses for Sun Country passengers starting next week.

It will mean that Duluth and Mankato-area customers can book their journeys on a single itinerary from their respective cities in the same way as booking a connectinh flight, except that the first leg of the journey is the bus trip to MSP.

The 56-seat buses will depart from Duluth and Mankato's regional airports, where passengers will be able to check in their bags through to their final destination.

The bags will also be transferred automatically to the Landline bus when they return to MSP.

The buses are decked out with leather seats, with free WiFi and power outlets, and an onboard food and drink service.

With their bags already checked in, passengers arriving at MSP are able to go straight into the security line.

It's a first of its kind partnership in Minnesota and Sun Country is Landline's first customer, with the Star Tribune reporting the company was set up to provide airport access to regional markets that are no longer served by as many flights.

Here are the schedules for Mankato and Duluth Landline buses.
