Petters Aviation, LLC and its subsidiaries, including MN Airlines, LLC, d.b.a. Sun Country Airlines, filed for protection under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code, the airline said in a statement, but said “Sun Country Airlines will continue to operate and fly its regular flight schedule.”

We do not anticipate any disruptions, and expect to operate business as usual. Customers can book their flights in confidence and know that they will continue to receive the great service that they are accustomed to on Sun Country."
