US low-cost carrier Breeze Airways plans to expand its services to Florida with 11 new seasonal routes. The new routes will connect Fort Myers, Florida with nine cities in the Midwest and Eastern United States:
Akron-Canton, Ohio; Columbus, Ohio; Louisville, Kentucky; New Orleans, Louisiana; Norfolk, Virginia; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina; Richmond, Virginia; and Syracuse, New York.
The new routes will start in November 2023 and run through April 2024. Breeze Airways is targeting “snowbirds” with these new routes – those who travel to Florida for the winter months. The airline is hoping to attract these travelers with its low fares and convenient service.
This is not the first time that Breeze Airways has expanded its service to Florida. In February 2023, the airline announced new routes from Providence, Rhode Island to Orlando and Fort Lauderdale.
With these latest expansions, Breeze Airways will now offer service to seven airports in Florida.
Founded by David Neeleman, who also founded Morris Air, WestJet, JetBlue, and Azul Linhas Aereas. The airline launched in May 2021 with service from Salt Lake City to Charleston, South Carolina.
Breeze Airways is targeting underserved markets with its low fares and convenient service. The airline’s motto is “Nice, new, and nonstop.” The new routes to Florida are a further sign that Breeze Airways is continuing to grow and expand its reach.
Providing more Florida travel options
The new routes from Breeze Airways will give travelers more options when flying to Florida. For snowbirds, these new routes will provide a more convenient and affordable way to travel to the Sunshine State.
For other travelers, these new routes will likely open up new destinations in Florida that were not previously served by low-cost carriers.
The new routes from Breeze Airways are a sign of the growing competition in the airline industry as it moves further into the post-pandemic recovery period.
With travellers continuing to show an appetite for air travel, low-cost carriers are becoming increasingly popular, and they are putting pressure on traditional airlines to lower their fares.
The new routes from Breeze Airways will potentially stand to put pressure on other airlines that serve Florida, as they move to compete with Breeze Airways’ low fares.
Breeze Airways is a young airline, but it has already made a significant impact on the industry. The airline’s low fares and convenient service have attracted a large number of customers, and it is continuing to grow rapidly.
It is likely that Breeze Airways will continue to expand its route network in the future, and move to consolidate that network.
The new routes from Breeze Airways to Florida are a sign that the airline is continuing to grow and expand its reach. The airline is hoping to attract new customers with these new routes, and it is targeting “snowbirds” with its wintertime service.
The new routes are also a sign of the growing competition in the airline industry, and they could put pressure on other airlines that serve Florida.
