Sun Country Airlines (SY, Minneapolis St. Paul International) has agreed to operate another eight B737-800(BCF)s for, according to a June 20, 2024, regulatory filing. Sun Country will begin flying the Amazon-owned aircraft in 2025. It adds to the twelve B737 freighters Sun Country already operates on behalf of the logistics giant.

Under the terms of the Amended and Restated Air Transport Services Agreement, Sun Country's existing contract is extended to 2030, with options to further extend the terms through 2037. "Amazon is an extremely important customer to Sun Country and strong execution on our current cargo services positioned us well to grow our business," said CEO Jude Bricker. The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Sun Country Airlines styles itself as "a new breed of hybrid low-cost air carrier." According to ch-aviation PRO airlines data, it flies to 139 airports in 14 countries with a fleet of 56 aircraft, including the 12 existing B737-800BCFs and forty-four B737-800s. Freight is becoming an increasingly important part of the Sun Country business model, with CFO Dave Davis telling an investors call last week that by the end of 2025, the contribution margin of the Amazon flights should be equal to the contribution margin of Sun Country's passenger flying on a historical basis.
