What to know about Sun Country Airlines

The Minnesota-based airline announced Tuesday its largest route expansion in the company's history.

Along with adding nonstop flights at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, Sun Country added the aforementioned flights from Nashville, three from Las Vegas, two from Portland, two from Dallas-Fort Worth, one from San Francisco.

What they said

“Today’s announcement of three additional routes from Sun Country Airlines is great news for Nashville and our entire region,” said Doug Kreulen, Nashville International Airport president and CEO.

“Our passengers can now fly nonstop to Portland, Ore., a destination that has been a top domestic target for many months. Providence, R.I., is also a new destination for BNA, and additional LAX service creates competition in the market with more flight options, which often leads to lower rates."
