Commercial service is coming back to Branson Airport.
Minneapolis-based Sun Country Airlines announced service at Branson Airport starting in August, according to a news release.
“The Branson Airport is very excited for Sun Country to bring its low fares to the Branson and greater Ozarks region,” said Stan Field, Branson Airport executive director, in the release. “Making it easier for visitors to travel to our region with convenient and affordable flights is something Branson Airport has been committed to since opening in 2009.”
Sun Country will offer nonstop flights to and from Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
The announcement comes after Frontier Airlines chose not to continue providing commercial service to Branson Airport this year, leaving private flights as the only travel option at the airport, according to reporting by Branson Tri-Lakes News.
