MN Airlines, which operates as Sun Country Airlines, has announced that its parent has sold Sun Country to a private company owned by the Davis family of St Peter, Minnesota, the owners of Cambria Holdings.
“Today is an exciting day for our employees, our customers and the communities we serve,” proclaimed Stan Gadek, president and CEO of Sun Country. “We look forward to working with our new owners to continue to expand our services, while maintaining our commitment to providing top notch customer service. As we approach our 30th anniversary as the Twin Cities’ Hometown Airline, we intend to provide our customers with even more domestic and international routes.
“The acquisition is a testament to the hard work and commitment of our employees during these past few years,” Gadek added. “I am very proud of our people and what we have accomplished during some challenging times, and I look forward to this exciting new chapter in Sun Country’s history.”
Sun Country has more than 800 employees and flies to 38 year-round and seasonal destinations, in the US, Mexico, Caribbean and Europe. The carrier’s fleet consists of 12 Boeing 737NGs.
No changes to Sun Country’s operations, management team or frequent-flyer programme are planned and the airline’s headquarters will continue to be located in St Paul, Minnesota.
