Global Aviation Services Chief Executive Carm Borg says the company terminated its contract with Sun Country three weeks ago.
    
Sun Country spokeswoman Jessica Wheeler says Global Aviation's work at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport wasn't up to the airline's standard. The airline has temporarily resumed hiring operations.
    
Sun Country hired the ground services contractor in February to provide ticketing agents, gate agents, wheelchair assistants, baggage handling and airplane cleaning services.  The airline then laid off 350 ground service workers in May.
    
The airline hopes to find another contractor by the fall.
