Eau Claire, Green Bay and Madison, Wisconsin to Orlando (MCO), Florida
Commencing April 12, 2023: Sun Country has now opened bookings for its proposed non-stop service from Chippewa Valley Regional Airport (EAU) to Orlando (MCO).
The service will operate twice weekly on Friday and Monday starting April 21, 2023. This service is in addition to Sun Country’s nonstop service from Eau Claire to MSP which allows for connectivity across Sun Country’s system.
Also, in Wisconsin, new service will operate twice weekly on Thursdays and Sundays between Orlando and both Madison and Green Bay beginning April 20.

“Customers in Wisconsin have strongly supported Sun Country’s growth and we are thrilled to add this new service to Orlando that augments existing service to Fort Myers, Las Vegas and Phoenix from both of these great markets.”
MSP to Destin-Fort Walton Beach (VPS), Florida
In addition to the increased services in Wisconsin, the airline will also add another Florida service to its offerings from its Minnesota base.
Commencing April 12, 2023: Destin-Fort Walton Beach will become Sun Country’s 11th nonstop destination in Florida from the Twin Cities.
“We are excited to provide new service to northwest Florida,” said Whitney. “Sun Country offers the most nonstop Florida destinations from MSP, and we are confident that Minnesotans and Midwest vacationers will love the white sand beaches that have made the Florida Panhandle famous.”
Okaloosa Board of County Commissioner Chairman Mel Ponder added: “This partnership is so meaningful for Okaloosa County.”
