The low-cost airline could soon offer international flights. CEO says

Low-cost carrier Breeze Airways may soon expand beyond the United States with international flights.

The airline, which was founded in 2021 and has since expanded rapidly, is now seeking approval from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to eventually fly to international sun destinations and parts of Europe, CEO David Neeleman told Reuters.


Neeleman told the wire service that international flights would allow the airline to take advantage of “peak season travel” to places like Ireland.


“These pockets of pain that are created because there’s either no air service there, it’s completely gone or it’s just regional aircraft going to hubs, have created hundreds and hundreds of market opportunities for us,” he told the wire service. “The market has changed dramatically, and it has created great opportunities for us.”


The comments came as Breeze announced on Wednesday that it’s adding Ogden, Utah to its schedule, with flights to Orange County-Santa Ana, California, starting on 21 February 2024.

“Today, Breeze is writing a new chapter for Ogden – one in which its residents have access to easy, affordable and convenient air travel to highly desirable destinations like Orange County,” Breeze Airways President Tom Doxey said in a statement.

Breeze currently flies to 45 cities in 27 states, but does not fly to international destinations or outside the contiguous U.S. The airline operates a fleet of Embraer 190 and 195 aircraft, as well as Airbus A220-300 aircraft, and uses a low-cost model with three fare options: “Nice”, “Nicer” and “Nicest” (which includes Breeze Ascent, which comes with perks such as checked baggage, complimentary snacks and beverages, and in-seat AC power and USB and USB-C charging ports).
