Sun Country Airlines, the low-cost Minnesota-based carrier, has announced changes to its cancellation and change flight policies. Contrary to what most airlines do with these service charges, the airline has decided to lower the charges and even eliminate them in some cases if the changes or cancellation come far enough in advance.

Sun Country Airlines is pleased to share that as of now, the following charges apply to flight changes:

  • If the change is made over 60 days away – Free
  • If the change is made 14 to 59 days away - $50 per way, per person
  • If the change is made 13 days or less - $100 per way, per person

The airline has stated it is experiencing significant growth because it has been dedicating its efforts into creating a better overall passenger experience. One of those ways that it wants to improve the experience is by making it less expensive to change or cancel your flight. These services often cost as much as the regular ticket on the major carriers, and in some cases, the flight changes or cancellations may not even be available.

Sun Country Airlines understands that business and personal plans can change. Life happens, and we just have to go with the changes. The carrier believes passengers should have an easy option to change their tickets when life throws a change their way.

The airline also revealed that it would begin offering more routes and more destinations throughout the year. Sun Country Airlines continues to see growth as the demand for reasonably priced airfare continues to rise across the country.
