MLS, Sun Country sign 5-year charter contract

Sun Country Airlines and Major League Soccer (MLS) have announced a five-year agreement to provide charter service to all MLS teams.

The agreement is set to begin in 2022 and builds on a relationship between Sun Country and the league that developed over the last year. Sun Country began providing charter service to MLS during the summer of 2020 when the league returned to play following its COVID-19 hiatus.

According to a news release, this new agreement provides charter services according to the league’s Collective Bargaining Agreement requirements.

"MLS is a phenomenal organization and our partnership with them validates Sun Country’s ability to operate in all segments of the charter business, including professional sports," said Grant Whitney, Sun Country Airlines Chief Revenue Officer. "Our demonstrated capability of flying MLS teams to destinations across North America is a testament to our operational capabilities and the dedication of our great Sun Country employees."
