The low-cost airline Breeze Airways is expanding yet again, this time launching its 100th route between Orange County’s John Wayne Airport (SNA) and Orlando (MCO).
Here’s what you need to know!
Flights Begin Service on February 16, 2023
Orange County is Breeze’s 100th nonstop route and is now the 34th city served by the airline.
Breeze says it is also adding nonstop service between Orange County’s John Wayne Airport (SNA) and Provo-Salt Lake City (PVU) and a one-stop, no-plane change (which the airline is calling a “BreezeThru”) flight between Provo-Salt Lake City and Orlando.
The flights will commence on February 16, 2023.
“We are pleased to welcome a new airline partner to our diverse group of carriers,” said Charlene Reynolds, SNA airport director, in a statement.
“Breeze supports community interests by bringing Orange County a fleet of cleaner, quieter aircraft. We are excited to deliver a superior level of convenience for our guests with additional service and new destinations,” the statement continued.
To celebrate the launch, the airline is offering fares on the nonstop routes starting from $119 one-way between Orange County and Orlando and from $49 between Orange County and Provo. Fares must be purchased by November 15, 2022, for travel by May 16, 2023.

Breeze was launched back in May 2021 by David Neeleman, who also founded JetBlue Airways. The airline has a fleet of Embraer 195 and Airbus A220-300 aircraft and serves 34 cities in more than a dozen states.
The news comes just a few weeks after Breeze announced a massive expansion that will see the airline add 19 new routes — including 12 nonstops — and 2 new cities in 2023. The airline is adding service to destinations it has never flown to before, including Cincinnati, Ohio (CVG) and Vero Beach, Florida (VRB).
Service on these new routes begin in early February 2023.
Bottom Line: Breeze frequently announces new routes, such as this 35-route expansion, so keep an eye out for new cities early next year!
Breeze seems to be on a roll with a new route that connects Orange County with one of the largest cities in Utah. And even better: both cities will connect to one of the biggest travel destinations in the United States with the addition of Orlando service. If you’re interested in these routes, take advantage of the discounted fares before November 15!
