Based in Minneapolis, MN at the Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport, Sun Country Airlines has officially announced Manchester, NH as one of their newest destinations from Minneapolis, MN alongside Monterey, CA. Sun Country Airlines is the latest in new airlines joining the roster at the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport as the third newest airline to land in New Hampshire.

Minneapolis has been one of the most requested destinations from MHT since Delta dropped that city in the early 2010s after their merger with Northwest Airlines. MSP is a vital route as it is a major connection point not only to the western coast of the US but to Asia as well, as Delta has had a hub at MSP since merging with Northwest Airlines.

Although a new airline to New Hampshire that will offer flights, SCX is no stranger to flying into MHT, as they have often been seen flying into Manchester as a charter to places such as Atlantic City (ACY). Efforts to bring SCX into MHT have been ongoing for quite some time, as they serve Boston, Portland (Maine), Burlington, Providence, and Hartford currently to Minneapolis, MN.

With SCX now flying into Manchester, NH, this makes it the final place in New England that will be a part of the Sun Country Network, as they now serve all of New England with the announcement of them beginning flights to Manchester, NH.

With their entry into the market here in Manchester, there is a very minor chance that Delta, being a major fortress hub in MSP, could see this as an opportunity and return into the MHT Roster as a new airline, and offer services to MSP as well.


Could Delta return to Manchester to compete with Sun Country? Although almost non-existent and Delta having just left MHT back in 2020, the chance for their return is there with this sudden announcement. Only time will tell whether they will make a move or not.


Sun Country will begin flights on August 22, 2024, with flights going only once weekly. Sun Country will operate the Boeing 737-800 on this route and will be flying solely to Minneapolis, MN. It is currently unknown which gate Sun Country will occupy at the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport and will be updated once Gate information has been obtained. Flights will start at just $99 one way and can go as low as $79 One way.
