Indianapolis International Airport is once again adding to its offerings. Minnesota-based Sun Country Airlines is planning to set up operations at the airport and bring two new nonstop flights to Minneapolis-St. Paul and Orlando later this year.
The Minneapolis flight will run twice per week beginning in late May. The flight to Orlando will begin in early September.
“Now travelers headed to Minneapolis will have more nonstop options out of Indy, and an additional option in the fall to Orlando – which is Indy’s number-one vacation destination,” Mario Rodriguez, executive director of the Indianapolis Airport Authority, said in a news release. “These flights tie in perfectly for those ready for a summer vacation.”
Rodriguez says the airport has worked “for years” to bring the airline to Indianapolis. He says a conversation with airline officials at the Routes Americas conference in Indy last year helped to close the deal.
“Sun Country has provided private charter service from Indy before, but this will be the first time they are operating scheduled commercial service,” Rodriguez said.
