Low-cost carrier Breeze Airways is adding two new routes to Florida this autumn, expanding its robust service to the Sunshine State.
Beginning 15 November, the airline will launch a brand new seasonal service from Portland, Maine, to Fort Myers, the airline told Travel + Leisure. The new route will operate on Wednesdays and Saturdays throughout the winter and spring.
Then, on 28 November, the airline will launch service from Plattsburgh, New York, to Orlando. This flight will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Plattsburgh is located just south of the Canadian border and approximately 60 miles from Montreal.
“Plattsburgh becomes our fourth airport in upstate New York, but the first with significant international appeal,” said Tom Doxey, president of Breeze Airways, in a statement provided to T+L. “With our expansion in Florida, Breeze now offers the most Florida destinations from six cities in our network.”
With the new routes, Breeze will now serve seven different destinations in Florida: Fort Myers, Jacksonville, Orlando, Sarasota/Bradenton, Tampa, Vero Beach and West Palm Beach. In total, the airline is adding 19 new routes to Florida over the next two months.
To celebrate the new flights, travel from Portland to Fort Myers starts as low as $89 one-way and from Plattsburgh to Orlando as low as $59 one-way. To take advantage of the promotion, flights must be booked by 11:59 p.m. ET on September 18 and are valid for travel through April 30, 2024.
Breeze was founded in 2021 by former JetBlue founder David Neeleman and has since expanded rapidly, adding new routes from popular destinations such as Louisiana and Pennsylvania for the fall.
The airline operates a low-cost model with three fare options: “Nice,” “Nicer” and “Nicest,” which includes the company’s newest product, Breeze Ascent, which comes with checked baggage, complimentary snacks and beverages, and in-seat AC power and USB and USB-C charging ports.
Breeze does not charge a fee for changes or cancellations made to any of its flights up to 15 minutes prior to departure.
