In April, Breeze Airways applied to the FAA for approval to temporarily dispatch aircraft without registration/airworthiness certificates. As Breeze Aviation Group, Inc. does not currently possess an FAA air carriage certificate or authorized operations specification and Breeze is not qualified for exemption, the FAA today rejected the appeal.
First Aircraft landed today
The first airplane from Breeze Airways has landed in the United States. Breeze Airways Embraer E195-E1 arrives in the US with PR-AUB registration, formerly run by Azul Linhas. The aircraft was stored in Macon, Georgia, since the start of the country’s pandemic. The aircraft then flew on to Peru, Indiana, where the current Breeze livery would grant it a paint scheme.
To extract the colors from Azul, the E195-E1 must undergo a painting process and will come outfitted with the colors of Breeze Airways.
Azul is leaving approximately 30 Embraer aircraft for Breeze. Breeze is scheduled to begin operating earlier next year. It was still bound to attract some exposure. The breeze would also need to prepare and request approval for its routes until decked out in its latest colors. However, one move forward to the launch is the carrier.
