Breeze Airways Marks First Anniversary, Launches 7 New Routes at Bradley International Airport
Windsor Locks, CONN. – June 2, 2022 – Coinciding with its one-year anniversary at Bradley International Airport, Breeze Airways is launching seven new flights at the airport – six over the course of three days, starting today, with the seventh starting after Labor Day.
The new flights will be taking off this week to Nashville, TN; Akron/Canton, OH; Savannah, GA; Richmond, VA; Jacksonville, FL; and Sarasota/Bradenton, FL, and, finally in September, to Las Vegas, NV.
“Over the last twelve months, Breeze has been a tremendous partner at Bradley International Airport,” said Kevin A. Dillon, A.A.E., Executive Director of the Connecticut Airport Authority. “With the launch of the new flights, we have reached an exciting one-year milestone as their New England base and are thrilled to celebrate their network expansion which now includes a total of eleven destinations.”
The majority of these new routes will be operated on Breeze’s fleet of brand-new Airbus A220s once the airline begins the rollout of the new aircraft. Other than Nashville and Las Vegas, all the destinations are brand new routes to Bradley International Airport.
“The addition of the Airbus A220-300 is a game-changer for us as we can now serve Hartford guests not only up and down the east coast but all the way to Las Vegas!” said Breeze’s Founder and CEO David Neeleman. “The A220 offers travelers the widest cabin, highest ceiling, largest windows and biggest overhead stowage in this class, while still managing to burn 25% less fuel, with half the noise footprint of past generations and everyone loves to fly on it.”
Since making their debut at Bradley International Airport in late May 2021, Breeze Airways has named the airport one of its five national bases and has expanded its nonstop offerings to eleven destinations.
In addition to the launch of the seven new routes, the airline currently operates nonstop service from Bradley International Airport to Columbus, OH; Norfolk, VA; Pittsburgh, PA; and Charleston, SC.
The inaugural flights for the seven new nonstops will debut as follows:
June 2, 2022 Nashville, TN 4 x weekly Seasonal
June 3, 2022 Akron/Canton, OH 2 x weekly Seasonal
Richmond, VA 2 x weekly Seasonal
Jacksonville, FL 4 x weekly Year-round
June 4, 2022 Savannah, GA 4 x weekly Year-round
Sarasota/Bradenton, FL 2 x weekly Year-round
September 7, 2022 Las Vegas, NV 2 x weekly Year-round
Among its hallmark offerings, Breeze Airways is committed to low fares with booking flexibility that includes no change or cancellation fees for flights changed or cancelled up to 15 minutes before scheduled departure.
Headquartered in Salt Lake City, Breeze Airways was founded by David Neeleman and is his fifth airline start-up, after JetBlue, Brazil’s Azul, Canada’s WestJet, and Utah-based Morris Air, which was later purchased by Southwest Airlines.
All flights are on sale at www.flybreeze.com and the Breeze app.
