DIA gets new international nonstop flight -- to Montreal -- and new airline -- Sun Country Airlines

Denver International Airport announced that it is adding a new nonstop destination and a new airline.

New nonstop destination

The new nonstop flight is from Air Canada which will provide daily nonstop service between DIA and Montreal, Quebec, Canada, beginning June 4, 2016.

“Montreal was a key market missing from our air service network,” said Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock.  “Nonstop connectivity is a critical component of our efforts to elevate Denver’s profile globally, and Air Canada’s flights will serve to further boost our international growth.”

Air Canada is Denver’s longest tenured foreign-flag carrier. Air Canada currently provides twice-daily flights between Toronto and Denver.

New airline

Thursday, Sun Country Airlines announced it will add a daily, year-round nonstop service from its hometown market of Minneapolis/St. Paul (MSP) to DIA.
 
The new service starts May 2, 2016.
 
"Adding service to Denver is a win for our passengers looking to get away for leisure or business," said Larry Chestler, EVP, Sun Country Airlines. "Denver is one of the sunniest metropolitan areas in the country so it's a natural for Sun Country Airlines to serve Denver International Airport. We are excited to continue to grow our year-round destination roster with this addition.”
