Sun Country Airlines is a United States based airline. Its headquarters located in the Minneapolis–Saint Paul suburb of Eagan, Minnesota and based at nearby Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Airport. The airline’s main focus is flying Minnesotans to warmer destinations during the winter months, such as Florida and Mexico. The airline flies passengers between the Twin Cities and the east and west coast in the U.S. Sun Country in the summer months, and also operates flights from Dallas/Fort Worth which serves as a focus city for the airline. It operates scheduled and charter flights to destinations in the United States, Mexico, Costa Rica and the Caribbean as well as ad-hoc charters.
Sun Country Airlines wasn’t born in a corporate office. Instead, it was started in 1982 by a small group of pilots and flight attendants in Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN, the very people who love flying.
The small group that once flew for Braniff International were joined by a few area businessmen and MLT vacations, and the company with new Sun Country colors lifted off, quite literally in 1983, with a maiden flight between Sioux Falls and Las Vegas.
Only a few months later, the world would see the first appearance of the smiley face. Coincidence? Maybe. But the same “can-do” hometown spirit that launched Sun Country still lifts us and our passengers today.
In an industry that’s seen its share of changes, Sun Country Airlines has adapted through the years, opening new routes across the U.S., and taking more vacationers to the tropical beaches of Mexico, Costa Rica, and the Caribbean. Even flying charters to support our troops across the world.
Since July of 2011, the airline has been owned by members of the Davis family of Minnesota, who are also owners of Cambria®, a manufacturer of premium countertops.
As Minnesota’s Hometown Airline™, one passion guides every Sun Country employee and every flight — to safely and effectively help people connect with each other, to create memories that matter.
