Breeze Airways expands service with three new connections and increased frequency

Low-cost airline Breeze Airways is looking forward to the late summer months and has announced several new routes. The airline is celebrating its third anniversary, has successfully expanded its network and remains profitable.

New route additions

Breeze Airways will open three new nonstop routes and increase flight frequency. The new routes connect Burlington, VT; Fort Myers, FL; Long Island-Islip, NY; Tampa, FL and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, PA.

In addition, the airline is introducing an additional weekly flight between Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and Orlando, FL. These additional flights are scheduled to take effect in October with the following schedule:

  • Burlington, VT to Fort Myers, FL (Mondays and Fridays, beginning October 4).
  • Fort Myers, FL to Long Island-Islip, NY (Wednesdays and Saturdays, beginning October 2).
  • Tampa, FL to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, PA (Mondays and Fridays, beginning October 18).
  • Service from Orlando, FL to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, PA will increase from four to five times per week on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays beginning October 8.

Breeze has also launched a promotional campaign called “Destinations Dupes,” which offers 35% off the base round-trip fare with the code “DUPE,” showcasing domestic destinations with an international flair within the Breeze network. The campaign is valid on all flights except newly launched flights.

Summer initiatives

Prior to these upcoming services, Breeze had already launched several routes for the high-demand summer travel season. This includes the revival of the Jacksonville – Westchester County route, which will be served twice weekly with an Embraer E190.

In April, Breeze added five new routes, resumed two seasonal services and increased frequency on two routes, improving service from Akron/Canton, Ohio, and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, Pennsylvania, to Myrtle Beach, Florida. In addition, new service was introduced from Westchester County to Portland, Maine, along with the resumption of seasonal service to Norfolk and Jacksonville.

The airline also increased frequencies on existing routes, such as from Hartford to Myrtle Beach and from Westchester to Raleigh/Durham.

Expansive strategy

In a recent conversation with Jonathan Hendry, US head of Simple Flying, David Neeleman, founder and CEO of Breeze Airways, shared that the airline is open to exploring numerous new network opportunities. Breeze has just celebrated its third year and has quickly established a profitable model by focusing on routes without direct competition, which has proven to be a successful strategy so far.

Breeze currently serves more destinations than any other airline in 11 of its cities and is the only scheduled airline in at least one city.
