MADISON, Wis. - More flight options are coming to Madison as the Dane County Regional Airport announces five non-stop destinations out of Madison.
The flights will start in May and June to Nashville International Airport (BNA), Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) and Portland International Airport (PDX), according to a release. All of the flights will be through Sun Country Airlines. The airport already offers flights to Newark on United, but this is a new route for Sun Country Airlines.
"This is the largest route expansion in our airport's history, and we look forward to providing so many new, seasonal flight locations," says Dane County Executive Joe Parisi. "Whether it be Boston, Seattle, Portland, Newark, or Nashville, our travelers will have even more exciting locations to pick from when planning a trip in 2020."
