Sun Country Airlines adds back Minneapolis flights

HARLINGEN — Sun Country Airlines is returning to Harlingen.

The Minneapolis-based airline suspended seasonal passenger flights to Harlingen in July 2015, although it continued to provide charters to casinos in Nevada.

Airlines executives said they were responding to demands of their customers for passenger flights between Minnesota and Harlingen.

“Our customers asked, and we listened,” said Zarir Erani, president and chief executive officer of the airline. “We value the insights our passengers share with us, and we look forward to continuing to grow our roster of seasonal destinations.”

The seasonal, nonstop flights to Valley International Airport were popular with Winter Texans from the upper Midwest, and will again be available starting Nov. 10.
