Sun Country Airlines announced the addition of two new destinations, Belize and St. Kitts & Nevis, to its growing network.
Sun Country will offer the first-ever seasonal nonstop service between Minneapolis/St. Paul and Belize, and between Minneapolis/St. Paul and St. Kitts and Nevis. The new destinations will be served between December 22, 2018, and April 20, 2019, with weekly roundtrip flights on Saturdays.
“At Sun Country, we pride ourselves on delivering fantastic value to our guests, connecting them to their favorite people, places and memories. Belize and St. Kitts and Nevis are amazing beach destinations that we have no doubt Minnesotans will be excited to flock to in the winter,” said Ben Brookman, the vice president, network and pricing of Sun Country Airlines. “We are pleased to be the first airline to offer scheduled nonstop service from MSP to these two great destinations, and look forward to offering Minnesotans affordable nonstop service to even more vacation hot spots.”
“Sun Country’s new nonstop flight from Minneapolis to Belize City marks our farthest reach into the Upper Midwest — an area of the U.S. that can really benefit from easy access to a tropical Belizean vacation when winter comes,” said Karen Bevans, Director of Tourism for Belize. “We appreciate Sun Country for further supporting our thriving tourism industry and providing more curious travelers with seamless opportunities to escape to Belize.”
“We are extremely pleased to welcome this new air service from Sun Country Airlines,” said the Hon. Mr. Lindsay F.P. Grant, Minister of Tourism, International Trade, Industry and Commerce for St. Kitts & Nevis. “This flight from Minneapolis increases the number of nonstop flights into the Federation from the US, our primary source market for visitors. Further, the additional lift from the upper mid-west provides more options for travelers to reach our twin islands during peak season.”
