(COLORADO SPRINGS) — The Colorado Springs (COS) Airport has announced that Sun Country Airlines will begin nonstop seasonal service to Minneapolis/St. Paul (MSP) starting in June 2023 through the summer travel season.

The flights will run seasonally through Aug. 31, 2022, utilizing Boeing 737 aircraft with 183 seats. COS Airport said the service is now up for sale for those planning travel in the summer.
