Amid the proliferation of low-cost flying, Breeze Airways took off from Tampa International Airport on May 27, 2021, hotting up competition in the U.S. skies. Although the carrier is only a year old, it is flying to new heights every day, unlocking the potential of what has been promising to its customers-the nice, new, and nonstop service. Headquartered in Cottonwood Heights, Utah, Breeze Airways started its flight operations with a handful of destinations, but now it operates 99 nonstop routes between 33 cities in 19 states of America. Since its founding, the low-cost airline has moved full steam ahead, adding new cities regularly to its ever-expanding route map. Where does Breeze Airways fly?
The Utah-headquartered Breeze Airways flies domestic routes within the U.S. from smaller, secondary airports. From its bases in 6 cities, i.e., Charleston, Hartford, New Orleans, Norfolk, Provo, and Tampa, the carrier offers point-to-point flights between underserved routes across the U.S. The carrier seeks to make flying accessible to the public and targets leisure passengers willing to fly from secondary cities.
