Sun Country Airlines

Sun County Airlines is a smaller, but reputable, domestic carrier that is based out of Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota. They offer regular flights and vacation packages, and fly to several major centers throughout the continental United States, as well as flights to Mexico and the Caribbean.

Sun Country's pet policy allows pets to travel in the cabin of the aircraft or and as checked baggage in the cargo hold. It is important to note that both of those options are available for cats and dogs only and are limited to flights within the contiguous United States.

Travelers are reminded that a pet carrier will count toward your onboard baggage allowance.
