Minneapolis-based Sun Country Airlines has announced it will start another new nonstop service between Dallas Fort Worth and Palm Springs International Airport, beginning Feb. 6, 2019.
The flights will operate twice a week with roundtrips to and from Palm Springs on Wednesday and Saturday. This will be the third new city added by Sun Country this season as Portland and San Francisco were announced earlier. Minneapolis is the fourth city that has been served now several years.
“We’re excited to continue to expand in Dallas-Fort Worth and to offer residents more options to get away this winter,” Ben Brookman, vice president, network and pricing at Sun Country Airlines, said in a prepared statement. “We’ve seen success as we’ve grown in the market, and we look forward to introducing more guests to our exceptional customer service and low fares.”

“The city of Palm Springs is delighted Sun Country Airlines will be expanding service at Palm Springs International Airport,” City Manager David H. Ready said in a prepared statement. “We thank them for continuing to invest in the Palm Springs destination.”
In June, the City of Palm Springs announced that Delta Airlines would be adding new seasonal service to and from Palm Springs International Airport to Atlanta, Ga.
The new service will operate one nonstop flight daily beginning Dec. 20, 2018 through Jan. 20, 2019 — and then one trip on Saturdays through March 30, 2019.
In August, Flair Airlines, a Canadian, low-fare airline announced it would add Palm Springs International Airport to its network of flights, beginning Dec. 22, 2018.
Service in Palm Springs will be seasonal between Edmonton and Palm Springs up to four times a week. Other U.S. airports added include Florida’s Orlando International Airport, St. Pete-Clearwater (Tampa Bay), Miami as well as Las Vegas and Phoenix-Mesa Airport.
During the Christmas and New Year’s Day holidays, with the addition of the latest Sun Country news, Palm Springs International Airport will have the most nonstop flights ever departing, averaging at least 51 flights per day between Dec. 20 and Jan. 6, according to flight schedules.
