Breeze Airways adds more East Coast routes for summer travel

The low-cost carrier plans to begin service this summer between Raleigh-Durham and Burlington, Vermont, Portland, Maine, and Syracuse, New York.

Breeze Airways has finalized its summer schedule from Raleigh-Durham International Airport and announced three new routes to New England.

Just before Memorial Day weekend, the low-cost airline will begin flights between Raleigh-Durham and Burlington, Vermont, Portland, Maine, and Syracuse, New York. These routes will operate twice weekly throughout the summer season, which ends on September 3rd. Breeze began service to North Carolina airports in February 2022 and has proven success in this destination. In less than a year, the airline has grown rapidly, offering year-round and seasonal routes.

“Raleigh-Durham and its broader Research Triangle are the fastest growing destinations in the homeland,” Breeze Airways President Tom Doxey said in a statement shared exclusively with Travel & Leisure. It has been proven that there is.” “We are seeing strong demand in the region and with 15 direct flights now on offer, we are pleased to be able to offer our customers a more affordable and convenient destination.”

Beyond New England, the airline has several additional summer routes planned to North Carolina airports. Starting in May, Breeze will fly between Raleigh-Durham and San Diego, a new transcontinental route not offered by any other airline. Coinciding with this announcement, all three of Breeze’s newest flights will be available for just $59 one-way when booked directly through Breeze’s website or app. Promotional rates must be booked by February 5th, but there are no blackout dates.

That means travelers based in the Triangle region can take advantage of these great fares to New England in midsummer.Breeze’s main competitor, Avero Airlines, opened a location in Raleigh-Durham last year. This summer, Lufthansa and Aeromexico are coming to the airport to offer new flights to Frankfurt and Mexico City, respectively.
