The seasonal flights will be offered August 24, 2017 through December 3, 2017, with future potential. Sun Country is now the fourth carrier currently serving STS.

In celebration, the Airport will be handing out Wine Country tourism goodie bags to arriving passengers into STS on Thursday, and all passengers on departing flights will receive locally made cookies contributed by Sonoma County-based Cookie… Take a Bite!

The MSP-STS flights will be on Sun Country’s Boeing 737-800 aircraft featuring a two-class configuration with 12 first class seats and 150 coach class seats, providing ample options for a variety of traveler needs.

Sun Country’s MSP-STS route expands business and leisure travel to Northern California Wine Country from the Midwest and beyond with convenient eastbound connections to Boston and New York (JFK)*.

This flight will give local travelers to the Minneapolis/St. Paul area an option to avoid the hassles of driving to other Bay area airports,” said Chairwoman Shirlee Zane, Sonoma County Board of Supervisors.

“The addition of Santa Rosa/Sonoma County to Sun Country’s destinations gives our passengers access to experience some of the wonders of California, from wine country to the beautiful redwoods,” says Jude Bricker, Sun Country Airlines President and CEO. “We are thrilled to partner with Charles M.
