— Salt Lake City-Based Airline Adds Service from Utah, One Year After Launch –
SALT LAKE CITY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Breeze Airways, the Seriously Nice™ low-fare airline founded by aviation entrepreneur David Neeleman, is adding daily nonstop service from Provo, UT, near Salt Lake City, to Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Las Vegas, with fares from just $29 and $39* one way. The new flights from Provo, Utah’s second-largest metropolitan area, will mark the Salt Lake City-based airline’s debut service from Utah, one year after launching flight operations.
In addition, Breeze will also offer daily one-stop/no plane change service from Provo to New York’s Westchester County, and San Bernardino, east of Los Angeles.
“It’s been the question on everyone’s lips since we first opened our headquarters – when are you flying from Utah?” said Breeze’s Founder and CEO David Neeleman. “We’re excited to continue growing and hiring from here, and now flying from Utah too. The beautiful, newly renovated Provo airport will give our Guests an easy way to travel to both coasts.”
Breeze opened its Cottonwood Heights, UT, headquarters in February 2020, and currently employs some 70 Team Members at the facility, many of whom live in Utah County. In March 2022, the airline debuted the Breeze Training Academy in Salt Lake City for initial and recurrent training for its pilots, flight attendants and Guest Empowerment teams. With the new base at Provo, the airline expects to hire an additional 200 Utah-based Team Members, while continuing to add jobs across a range of positions including finance, operations, marketing and human resources at its headquarters.
Breeze will operate the new routes with its fleet of both Airbus A220s and Embraer 190s. The airline plans to more than double its fleet this year, from 13 Embraer 190 and 195 aircraft to 30 aircraft, including 14 Airbus A220s and three additional Embraer E-jets. Breeze has ordered 80 new Airbus A220-300 aircraft, that will be delivered one per month over the next six years, with options for 40 more.
When flying on the E-190 aircraft, Guests may choose from two price bundles that are offered as ‘Nice’ and ‘Nicer’. On the A220s, a third bundle, ‘Nicest,’ is also offered, including a First Class Seat. Guests may also choose a Nice or Nicer bundle and buy an upgrade to a First Class seat.
