MINNEAPOLIS TO HARLINGEN (AND BEYOND) ON SUN COUNTRY
Sun Country, once a charter specialist in Minnesota, announced last year that it was switching its business model from niche-full-service to low-fare. Not just an ordinary low-fare, though: Sun Country plans to chase demand wherever it takes them — including Harlingen, Texas — entering and exiting routes in as little as a 12-week period.
LOS ANGELES TO BARCELONA ON LEVEL
Level, the new Spanish low-fare affiliate of IAG (British Airways, Aer Lingus, Iberia) added Boston and Los Angeles to last year’s initial Barcelona route from Oakland, Calif. Level will also add flights to busy low-fare routes from Montreal and Newark to Paris later this year. The A330s will offer regular and premium economy, with the by-now-usual fare structure of a low-ball fare with almost nothing extra, plus a series of bundled options.
