Cutting the ribbon in Lansing were Chris Holman, Chairman Capital Region Airport Authority; Stan Gadek, CEO Sun Country Airlines; Tony Baltimore, Congressman Mike Roger’s office; Mark Alley, Senior Director of Global Protective Services and Public Affairs, Emergent BioSolutions; and Robert Selig, Executive Director Capital Region Airport Authority. At MSP, Gadek cut the ribbon assisted by Metropolitan Airport Commission’s Executive Director Jeff Hamiel and Matt Kramer, President of the St. Paul Chamber of Commerce.
Sun Country Airlines was welcomed to Washington Reagan with a fire-truck salute, while the airline’s airport staff gathered for a photo opportunity in the terminal.
- Sun Country Airlines continued expanding its base at Lansing, MI (LAN) and on 1 April launched flights to two year-round city destinations. The low-cost carrier mostly known for its leisure operations now flies six times weekly (daily except Saturdays) to both Minneapolis/St Paul, MN (MSP) and Washington Reagan, DC (DCA) using its 737-800 aircraft. Competition on the MSP route comes from Delta’s daily flights, while it is the first time the capital of Michigan is connected by air with the US federal capital since Northwest dropped its services in 2005. Notably, this is the Sun Country’s first route to Washington Reagan.
