Breeze Airways, a low-cost airline, is expanding its non-stop routes for the spring season. For the first time, the airline will be flying out of San Diego. Starting from April 30, Breeze will offer direct flights from San Diego International Airport to Raleigh-Durham. In early May, the airline will also introduce non-stop flights from San Diego to Cincinnati, Jacksonville, Pittsburgh, and Norfolk.
According to Breeze Airways’ President Tom Doxey, San Diego is a popular summer destination in the U.S. known for its great food, beautiful beaches, and family attractions. He expressed excitement about adding service to San Diego, making it the airline’s fifth destination in California and 46th airport served nationally.
In addition to the new San Diego routes, Breeze will also introduce non-stop flights between Los Angeles and Charleston, Raleigh-Durham and Westchester in New York, and Cincinnati and Hartford. The airline will also offer its convenient “BreezeThru” service, allowing travelers to fly between San Diego and Providence or Hartford without changing planes.
Breeze Airways, founded in 2021 by former JetBlue founder David Neeleman, has been rapidly expanding its operations. The airline is even considering adding international destinations beyond the United States.
Operating on a low-cost model, Breeze offers three fare options: “Nice,” “Nicer,” and “Nicest.” The “Nicest” option includes additional perks such as checked baggage, complimentary snacks and beverages, and in-seat AC power with USB and USB-C charging ports. Breeze also allows changes or cancellations free of charge up until 15 minutes before departure.
The airline operates a fleet of Embraer 190 and 195 aircraft, as well as Airbus A220-300 aircraft.
Breeze is known for its affordable fares and frequent sales. Currently, travelers can save 35 percent on round-trip flights by using the promo code “GETFRESH.” To take advantage of this offer, bookings must be made by 11:59 p.m. ET on January 12.
