Sun Country is looking to move its headquarters closer to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

The Twin Cities-based airline confirmed on Tuesday that it's planning to consolidate its metro area operations into fewer facilities.

That will likely include moving its headquarters from its current location on Corporate Center Curve in Eagan to a facility closer to MSP.

One of the locations being considered include its current hangar, known as Building C, on Cargo Road on the western edge of the airport, albeit this would require some reconfiguration.

Sun Country told BMTN that this "appears to be a strong option," but added: "However, nothing has been finalized at this time and there are still several steps to get past first, including agreeing to terms, getting necessary approvals and determining any potential construction timelines."

The Star Tribune reports that the airline currently rents its Eagan offices from brothers Marty and Mitch Davis, who owned Sun Country for six years before selling it to a New York-based investment group almost a year ago.

Sun Country's move will be discussed at a planning meeting held by the Metropolitan Airports Commission, which oversees MSP airport, later this month.
