Welcome to SunAir Express!
SunAir Express Virtual Airlines is a dedicated hobby organization that uses computer flight simulation software to model the operations of an airline.
SunAir Express was founded by the late James Martin Swanson (1936-1995) on the Prodigy Online Service in May of 1992. SunAir Express later expanded to include CompuServe and American Online but is now solely based on the Internet.
SunAir Express was set up as a regional airline with one hub at Tampa International Airport (KTPA) serving some 20 cities in the southeastern United States. SunAir Express has since expanded to five hubs with more than 1600 scheduled flights to over 400 airports in the United States including Alaska and Hawaii, along with flights to Canada, the Caribbean, Mexico, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and the Far East.
