(CMR) Sun Country Airlines launched its weekly service between Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) and Owen Roberts International Airport in Grand Cayman (GCM) on Saturday, 17 December.
The Minnesota Metropolitan Airports Commission joined representatives from Sun Country and the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism at MSP for a gate-side celebration before the inaugural flight. The celebration included a ribbon-cutting ceremony and photo opportunities for passengers.
The Sun Country plane was greeted upon landing with a ‘shower of affection,’, and passengers were treated to a selection of local treats and beverages as well as a steel pan serenade and an appearance by Sir Turtle.
Sun Country adds to the destination’s airline seat capacity, which has increased by 1,253 seats in the fourth quarter of 2022.
