Sun Country Airlines will initiate service between Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, and Syracuse, New York, next summer. The airline will launch twice weekly service on June 6, 2024.
The Sunday and Thursday service is scheduled as seasonal and can be booked through Sept. 1, 2024. Nonstop flights from Syracuse to Minneapolis-St. Paul are expected to depart midday, conveniently tying into a robust late afternoon bank of connecting flights at MSP. This will provide ultra-low-cost-carrier connectivity to major West Coast markets, including Los Angeles and Seattle. The route will be served by the airline’s Boeing 737-800 aircraft featuring 186 seats.
“This announcement from our new partner Sun Country Airlines has us very excited about 2024,” says Syracuse Regional Airport Authority Executive Director Jason Terreri in a prepared statement. “Bringing back nonstop service from SYR to MSP has been a high priority for both our business and leisure travelers. Restoring connectivity both to and through MSP makes it easier than ever for Syracuse travelers to head westward across the country.”
“We are excited to expand our service to include another city in New York state, including New York and Buffalo,” says Grant Whitney, senior vice president and chief revenue officer of Sun Country Airlines. “It will provide travelers with access to all upstate New York has to offer, including the Finger Lakes Wine Region and the Adirondack Mountains.”
