Breeze Airways’ Huge Summer 2022 Expansion

Breeze Airways’ Huge Summer 2022 Expansion

25

Breeze Airways is the US airline startup that started flying in May 2021. While the airline initially launched operations with used Embraer E190/195 aircraft, eventually the Airbus A220 will be the backbone of the carrier’s fleet, as Breeze has 80 of these on order.

Breeze’s focus is on offering point-to-point service in underserved markets, and the airline has just announced its biggest expansion to date. As of the summer of 2022, Breeze is adding 35 routes to 10 new cities, so let’s go over the details.

Breeze Airways Airbus A220-300

My take on Breeze’s expansion

With this latest expansion, in the summer of 2022 Breeze will operate a total of 77 routes to 28 cities in 18 states. It’s really cool to see Breeze Airways’ route network developing in this way. With the airline soon starting service with A220s, we’ll finally get to experience the potential of what Breeze has been promising.

A few random thoughts:

  • It’s cool to see Breeze finally expanding further west, with flights to California and Nevada
  • I’m particularly excited to see Breeze finally adding some transcon routes, which we hadn’t seen until now; routes like Syracuse to Las Vegas and Providence to Los Angeles are particularly exciting
  • The service to San Bernardino is interesting, since Breeze will be the only commercial airline operating there, yet the airline will only offer once daily service to San Francisco

Bottom line

Breeze Airways is continuing to expand significantly, and now the airline has revealed huge growth plans for summer 2022. The airline is adding 35 new routes, including flights to 10 new airports. Much of this growth comes as Breeze is putting A220s into service, as this plane opens up all kinds of new route potential.

I’m looking forward to trying Breeze’s A220s when they enter service in May!

What do you make of Breeze’s latest expansion?

    Is Breeze Airways considering expanding to Grand Rapids, MI in 2023?

  2. Don Davies Guest

    This is exciting to know! I want to book a flight to Savannah soon! I really love their cheap hotels! There are lots of them over in Savannah GA and are really great! I already stayed in some of them thanks to https://www.visitsavannah.com/hotels-motels ! I really recommend the ones featured in their website!

  3. David Guest

    SBD-SFO is listed as once a day on an E175. That appears to be the only E175 flight from SFO. I wonder what that plane is going to do the rest of the day. Maybe another route announcement ex-SFO is coming?

  4. KingBob Guest

    Orlando remains noticeably (and surprisingly) absent.

  5. George Romey Guest

    With oil skyrocketing and our government doing nothing to mitigate the situation I see an airline crisis soon arising which will pale what happened when oil spiked in the late 00s. You have to wonder how this is going to impact a start up airline trying to capture flyers with deep discount tickets. This isn't JetBlue start up of 2000-2003.

  6. henare Diamond

    Breeze will serve my city (Syracuse NY) soon. They sound like just st another deep discount carrier... this is hard to get excited about if their service is as good as, say, allegiant air...

  7. Niko Guest

    AA will be launching PVD-MIA as well as an additional route tomorrow from PVD, big week for an airport that looked like BOS' growth was going seriously threaten it (it's live and bookable)

  8. Matt Guest

    San Bernardino one is a gamechanger for anyone traveling down from SFO for the music fests there.

    1. zeer0 New Member

      100%. They should call that route the NOS Express.

  9. BenjaminGuttery Member

    Nice to see Bradley getting more service! AA and others have been cutting back there for years.

  10. Amol Guest

    JetBlue had LAS-RIC last year but I guess couldn’t make it work. Will be useful for me soon.

  11. pbmchenry Member

    San Bernardino has been trying to get an airline for ages and has a terminal that has sat vacant for over a decade after a period of questionable decisions converting the former Norton AFB. Given the limitations of the airport and its infrastructure for passenger traffic, it will be interesting to see how this route does.

  12. Tim Guest

    Very excited about PVD-LAX. “Nicest” fare with 2-2 seating is showing $200.

  13. kirk Guest

    I think your Breeze interior cabin picture above is an Embraer not an airbus a220 since seating is 2 x 2

    1. dfw88 Guest

      That's the A220 business class cabin. You can see where is switches to 2-3 about halfway back.

  14. James S Guest

    Bold move with oil approaching 150

  15. RF Guest

    It's good to see expansion of Breeze. Hope they can grow to be a competitor to the larger airlines.

  16. stogieguy7 Diamond

    Some of these flights seem mighty obscure to me. BDL-CAK? Granted it's once per week, but I'm not sure there's enough demand even for that. Yes, I know that CAK could theoretically serve the Cleveland S and SE suburbs - but again, how many people will take such a flight long term? That's not the only one I see, there are a few. Not to cast aspersions at Breeze's model; it is intriguing and I...

  17. Never In Doubt Guest

    Mrs. Doubt has been pestering me to visit Charleston, so I hope that flight from SFO sticks around, but none of those SFO flights look long term to me.

  18. rjb Guest

    doesn't help us poor folks in the DCA/IAD market.

    1. AA70 Member

      I think they like to try flights out and see how they work

  19. Debo Member

    I didn’t even know San Bernadino had an airport. Seems like it’s mainly cargo flights and private planes. Good option vs. Ontario for anyone going to Riverside I guess.

    1. Never In Doubt Guest

      Or Palm Springs.

  20. SQ51 Guest

    Their website shows TUL-BDL too, I believe that one is new also
