Passengers arriving at San Antonio International Airport last night to get on their flight found themselves in the middle of a party, complete with a DJ, games for prizes and plenty of cake, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
The reason, the city was celebrating the first flights out of the Airport by it’s newest airline, Sun Country.
“We are excited to have Sun Country at SAT because this airline is known for its affordable prices and this will attract even more business and leisure customers to our region, especially families looking for a vacation destination”, said Karen W. Ellis, Chief Customer Experience Officer, San Antonio Aviation System.
The event was the first Sun Country non stop to Portland, a key destination in the Pacific Northwest.
Sun Country already flew its first new flight out of San Antonio, to Minneapolis, and will begin service to Las Vegas in September.
