Breeze Airways is an airline based in the United States. The airline focuses on providing flights between mid-sized US destinations that were not previously connected with direct flights. The only airline in the US that currently offers flights to destinations in the Midsouth, Southeast and Northeast of the country. Throughout 2022, the airline will be extensively expanding its route network with the arrival of a fleet of new Airbus A220's. In the long term, the airline plans to fly more than 500 routes including destinations across the Atlantic. One of the airline's main goals is to provide low-fare, high-quality service to its customers.
Breeze launched flights in May 2021. The airline offers point-to-point flights, which means that, unlike many airlines, it isn't based at a particular airport and will fly a smaller number of routes between several different airports. The airline launched with 39 nonstop routes across 16 different cities within the US and its first service flew between Charleston and Tampa.
All of its crew is trained at its headquarters in Utah but after training, several different crews were stationed at other airports, such as Charleston - South Carolina, New Orleans - Louisana, Norfolk - Virginia and Tampa - Florida.
JetBlue's founder David Neeleman created Breeze Airways in 2018, which is the fifth airline that he launched. The airline was originally branded as Moxy Airways, before changing to Breeze Airways due to trademark issues. The airline primarily focuses on flying underserved routes that are not flown by existing US carriers. Once its domestic route network has fully rolled out, the airline is also considering launching low-cost, long-haul flights to destinations in South America and Europe.
Breeze Airways was originally supposed to launch in 2020 after acquiring Compass Airlines. However, the Compass Airlines acquisition never went through and due to the coronavirus pandemic, the launch was pushed back. Its official launch was in May 2021, with flight tickets going on sale just weeks before the first flight.
