In addition, new technology by Total Rewards Air will allow for ease of booking flight and hotel packages beyond its traditional passenger base of Total Rewards members. The scheduled charter flights to Atlantic City, Laughlin, Nevada, Tunica and Biloxi, Mississippi, will include both invited members of the company’s award-winning loyalty program as well as retail guests seeking an escape to the leisure destinations.

The expanded service will include more than 1,800 flights annually to the Total Rewards Air primary destination hubs of Atlantic City, Laughlin, Nevada, Tunica and Biloxi, Mississippi. Total Rewards Air flies more than 100,000 passengers per year. Sun Country Airlines and Via Airlines will serve as the main operating partners for Total Rewards Air and will service more than 100 origin cities across the United States including major North American markets such as Dallas, Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, Denver, Edmonton and Toronto, as well as smaller regional markets such as Monterrey, California, Bismarck, North Dakota, Midland, Texas and Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Starting this summer, Sun Country Airlines will operate one Boeing 737-700 while Via Airlines will operate five Embraer 145 regional jets on behalf of Total Rewards Air.
