MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Sun Country Airlines (Sun Country®) today announces seasonal service to new destinations Honolulu, Hawaii (HNL), and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (MYR). The new flight segments offer Sun Country customers access to these popular beach destinations, expanding Minnesota's Hometown Airline™ network to 43 domestic and international destinations.
Seasonal flights to Honolulu will be offered May 19 through August 19, 2018, via Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport, Terminal 2, and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Passengers departing from Minneapolis will have a short stop in Los Angeles before continuing to Honolulu. The new service will fly four times a week, Friday through Monday.
Honolulu provides Midwest- and Los Angeles-based travelers a getaway to a tropical paradise, complete with stunning beaches such as Waikiki, historic landmarks and fine dining.
"The addition of Honolulu to the family of Sun Country destinations gives our travelers the opportunity to experience the unique culture and history of Hawaii," says Jude Bricker, Sun Country Airlines' president and CEO. "We are thrilled to partner with Daniel K. Inouye International Airport so our travelers can experience all of what the island of Oahu has to offer."
"We look forward to welcoming Sun Country Airlines and its customers with aloha to Hawaii starting this spring. Sun Country's customers will appreciate the convenience of this new service and the opportunity to experience the diversity of culture and natural beauty that awaits them throughout the Hawaiian Islands," says George D. Szigeti, president and CEO of the Hawaii Tourism Authority.
Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
Seasonal flights to Myrtle Beach will be offered April 6 through June 4, 2018, via Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport, Terminal 2. The new service will fly twice a week, Monday and Friday.
Myrtle Beach's 60 miles of gorgeous beaches, 100 golf courses and booming entertainment scene offer an opportunity for Midwest travelers to fly to a new coastal city on the Atlantic Ocean. The city's subtropical climate makes it an ideal getaway for those looking for a warm mainland escape.
"We look forward to giving our customers an opportunity to visit Myrtle Beach and experience its endless beaches and countless attractions," says Bricker.
"Horry County Department of Airports is pleased with Sun Country Airlines' decision to launch operations at the Myrtle Beach International Airport," said Scott Van Moppes, director of airports. "Demand for nonstop air service between MSP and MYR has been increasing for years, therefore, we expect this to be a very successful market. The introduction of air service, enabling people to fly nonstop from Minneapolis-Saint Paul, MN, to Myrtle Beach, SC, and the entire Grand Strand is fantastic news for the traveling public. Today's announcement by Sun Country is exciting for the community and we look forward to a long successful relationship with MYR's newest airline partner."
