Sun Air Express flights & tickets

Sun Air Express used to be a small, commuter-flight airline with scheduled and chartered flights between New York, Maryland, Washington D.C., Virginia and Pennsylvania. Their charming fleet of Piper PA-31 aircrafts were perfect for the small crowd of people coming and going on mostly business-related trips back and forth on commutes, which usually qualified all seats on Sunair Express flights as business class category seating.

Regulars on Sun Air flights might find themselves nostalgic to learn that the small, quaint airline has been recently purchased by Southern Airways Express--a buyout that also includes plans to eventually retire the Piper fleet with high-winged, retro-looking Cessna 208 Caravan aircrafts. Southern Airways Express has also retired the use of the Sun Air Express name and continues on in its expansion, mostly in the Southern part of the USA.While it´s not possible to book under the name Sun Air Express anymore, you can now book Sun Air flights under the Southern Airways Express name. The new merged company still serves the commuter and business communities in the Mid-Atlantic region, and has expanded its service to fly to the Gulf region as well.

Why Fly Sun Air Express

Sun Air Express Baggage Information

Passengers on Sun Air Express flights (now Southern Airways Express) are allowed one free checked bag with a maximum weight of 50 lbs. Baggage that weighs between 51 and 70 pounds will be checked depending on space availability, for an additional fee of $25USD per bag. Sunair Express highly encourages its passengers to pack light due to space restrictions--and for the sake of comfort, as well. The airline also recommends sending oversized luggage through the UPS, FedEx, or USPS services as space is limited on Sun Air flights.
