One of America’s hottest new airlines is expanding fast.
Breeze Airways is adding the new East Coast destinations of Long Island (ISP) and West Palm Beach (PBI) to its route map, with a total of 8 new routes scheduled to take off for the first time in February 2022.
“We’re excited to introduce Breeze service to South Florida and the New York area, and look forward to adding more routes from both Palm Beach and Islip,” said David Neeleman, Chairman and CEO of Breeze Airways.
The airline is taking the U.S. by storm by focusing on underserved airports, tapping into new markets, and providing nonstop travel opportunities to those living in areas that were lacking in connectivity.
“Breeze’s business model is to add ‘nice, new nonstop’ flights on routes where only connecting service is offered by other carriers,” added Neeleman.
The airline will initially service the new routes with its fleet of all-economy Embraer E190 and E195 aircraft.
New York’s Islip Long Island MacArthur Airport (ISP)
Breeze Airways will be the newest airline to operate out of Islip — already a firm favorite of low-cost airlines — joining the likes of Frontier and Southwest.
Islip will see 2 new nonstop connections from Breeze: a 4 times weekly flight to Norfolk (ORF) starting February 17, 2022, and a twice-weekly flight to Charleston (CHS) starting February 18, 2022.
Breeze’s new flights from Islip are also exciting for Manhattaners, with hourly direct trains from Penn Station to Ronkonkoma from just $10.
Taking just 1 hour 13 minutes, the fastest train could certainly have you at Islip before a cab could have you at JFK.
Florida’s West Palm Beach Airport (PBI)
Down in the Sunshine State, Breeze Airways will be making an entrance into West Palm Beach airport, which is currently mostly served by the U.S. big 3 legacy carriers: American, Delta, and United.
Breeze’s 6 new routes from West Palm Beach will start on February 19, 2022, and connect Akron/Canton (CAK), Charleston (CHS), Columbus (CMH), New Orleans (MSY), Norfolk (ORF), and Richmond (RIC).
West Palm Beach is located around 70 miles from Miami and is a great gateway to the wetlands and beaches of Florida.
Hot Tip: Consider traveling onward from WPB to Ft. Lauderdale or Miami via the Brightline train service.
In February, Breeze Airways will be adding 8 brand-new routes, connecting city pairs that are currently unserved by any other airline.
Islip (ISP) and West Palm Beach (PBI) are just 2 of likely many more new destinations for the airline, which has detailed hundreds of unserved city pairs that are potential future targets.
