Sun Country Airlines has announced their largest addition of routes in the company’s history as a scheduled service airline – 19 new seasonal nonstop routes and seven new airports.

The new routes are part of an overall growth plan for the airline that will include aircraft growth and increase the company’s Twin Cities workforce by 10 percent in 2019. The additional eight routes from MSP will be a nearly 20 percent increase in destinations the airline offers local flyers.
