New Nonstop Service on Sun Country Airlines
The price for travel originating in Vancouver was found in USD and converted to CAD. You can toggle which currency you'd like to see on the fare details page by clicking on the flag on the right-hand side of the top menu bar.
It's cheapest to book two separate one-way fares in each direction for travel originating in Canada. Booking a simple roundtrip will be slightly more expensive.
These fares only include one small personal item. Carry-on and checked bag fees start at $30 each way when booked online.
Seats will be assigned at random upon check-in for these prices. You may pay a fee to choose a specific seat.
Since Sun Country's lowest fares only include a small personal item and these routes have very limited service, make sure to compare with other airlines, such as Delta, American, and Alaska. These airlines may offer similar fares to match these new low fares from Sun Country and will include at least a normal carry-on bag plus one personal item.
United may also start to price match and its lowest fares between Canada and the U.S. often book into its standard Economy class, which includes a full-size carry-on bag.
