Sun Air Express (Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood) began linking cities in south Florida with destinations in the Bahamas, hence the name “Sun Air.”
In 2012, Sun Air Express began regional services out of Houston (Bush Intercontinental) and Washington (Dulles) airports as part of the Essential Air Service program, which links over 100 smaller communities to hub airports.
Sun Air’s primary maintenance base is in Lancaster, PA.
In 2014, Sun Air Express was awarded five new routes from Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT). Starting next month the carrier will add up to 50 flights per week from Pittsburg International Airport to both Altoona, PA and Jamestown, NY according to Pittsburgh Business Times. Services to Bradford, PA, Lancaster, PA and Franklin/Oil City, PA will start before the end of the year. When completed, Sun Air Express will operate 125 flights a week at PIT.
The airline will operate Piper PA-31-350 Navajo Chieftains on the routes.
