Sun Country Airlines completes first Boeing 737-800 charter flight to Hawaii

Sun Country Airlines (Minneapolis/St. Paul) on Tuesday (June 22) conducted its first trans-Pacific flight in charter service from Phoenix to Honolulu. Touching down in Hawaii the Boeing 737-800 crew were greeted with a traditional gift of Hawaiian Leis welcoming Sun Country to the 50th state.

Sun Country operated the flights in scheduled and charter service utilizing procedures and equipment specifically designated for Extended-range Twin-engine Operations Performance (ETOPs).

As previously reported, Sun Country flew its first trans-Atlantic trip in scheduled service from Minneapolis/St. Paul to London’s Stansted airport on June 11. The one-stop seasonal service will operate weekly through August 15 between the Twin Cities and London with Boeing 737-800s.
