Sun County Airlines announced 18 new nonstop routes Tuesday, which includes flights from Duluth and Rochester for the first time.
Of the 18 new routes, which will launch in November and December, six of them are from its home hub at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, with two each at Duluth International Airport and Rochester International Airport.
The MSP routes will include flights to the Cayman Islands and Turks and Caicos, while Duluth and Rochester will have connections to Phoenix and Florida.
It comes amid growing signs that the travel industry is rebounding from the downturn seen during the pandemic.
“With more and more people excited to resume traveling, we’re thrilled to be able to offer them the opportunity to visit these incredible vacation destinations this winter,” said Sun Country Airlines Chief Revenue Officer Grant Whitney in a statement.
“We’re really proud to bring our brand of convenient, affordable travel to more cities in the Upper Midwest, so folks can enjoy the vacations they’ve been dreaming about.”
The expansion brings the airline’s total to 93 routes across 69 airports.
This isn't the first time the airline has expanded service to other parts of the state. In February, it expanded its shuttle service to Minneapolis-St. Paul to five more cities in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Last month, Sun Country Airlines saw its stock surge shortly after going public. Priced at $24 ahead of its debut on the Nasdaq, its stocks rose to $34.77 in just 75 minutes.
