MGM Resorts International and the Borgata Hotel Casino on Friday unveiled a new charter air service program.
The companies said “MGM Direct to Borgata” will be available to travelers from up to 75 departure cities across the US, with nonstop jet service via Sun Country Airlines into Atlantic City International Airport (ACY).
Confirmed markets so far include Clearwater, Florida; Cincinnati, Ohio; Buffalo, New York; Charlotte, North Carolina; Houston, Texas; Detroit, Michigan and more.
“Introducing Atlantic City as a Sun Country Airlines destination is a celebrated milestone for MGM Direct,” MGM executive director of charter services Sean Farrell said in a statement. “Since launching the exclusive charter program with MGM’s Beau Rivage resort in Gulfport-Biloxi in 2008, we have hosted tens of thousands of guests as they enjoy a getaway. In addition to bringing new and returning visitors to Borgata, the air program benefits greater Atlantic City as visitors dine in area restaurants, visit its bustling Boardwalk, enjoy day life and nightlife entertainment, and participate in outdoor activities on the famous New Jersey beaches.”
Tim Kroll, director of Atlantic City International Airport, added, “The expansion of Borgata’s flight service through ACY on Sun Country Airlines significantly increases the airport’s charter offerings and affords more passengers convenient access to Atlantic City. The program is valuable to introducing the market to a greater number of communities throughout the US.”
The charter flights to Atlantic City International Airport will operate on a Sun Country 173-seat 737-800 aircraft. Packages starting at $553 per person including roundtrip airfare, deluxe accommodations for three nights, and roundtrip ground transportation between the airport and Borgata.
