The start-up low-cost carrier Breeze Airways will launch a new route to and from Charleston — but it’s not what you’re thinking.

Here’s what you need to know!

Breeze Adds Charleston, West Virginia to Route Map

Breeze Airways announced on that it would begin twice weekly service between Charleston (CHS) in South Carolina and Charleston (CRW) in West Virginia starting May 31, 2023. 

Additionally, West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice announced that Breeze would connect Charleston, West Virginia, with 5 new cities, including New York City and the West Coast, over the next 2 years.

“As we look to fill the gaps left by larger carriers in midsized markets, Charleston/Yeager is a great fit for Breeze’s business model,” David Neeleman, Breeze Airways CEO, said in a statement. “With our new ‘Charleston to Charleston’ service, we’ll connect the West Virginia and South Carolina cities for the very first time, and our new nonstop to Orlando is also adding another currently unserved destination from CRW.”

To drum up interest in the route, Breeze is offering one-way promo fares starting at just $49. Note there are several restrictions. The promo fares must be purchased from March 28, 2023, through April 3, 2023 (11:59 pm ET), for travel through September 5, 2023. Also, the promotion is only valid for Wednesday travel.

This news comes amid an exciting few months for Breeze. The airline has ordered 80 brand-new Airbus A220-300 aircraft, with an option for 40 more. Back in February, Breeze announced 19 new routes, including 2 new cities: Cincinnati, Ohio (CVG) and Vero Beach, Florida (VRB).

About Breeze Airways

If you aren’t familiar, Breeze was launched by JetBlue founder David Neeleman and began operations in May 2021 with more than a dozen destinations. Today, the airline offers 145 nonstop routes between 3 dozen cities in 22 states. Breeze primarily focuses on point-to-point routes not covered by the major airlines and has its own loyalty program, BreezePoints.

Like other low-cost U.S. airlines, Breeze cuts costs by offering bare-bones amenities. While the airline does offer both a premium and economy-style cabin, you’ll go without added frills such as complimentary beverage service or meals.

The cheapest tickets, dubbed the “Nice” fares, get you little more than a personal item. You can pay extra for other perks, such as an extra legroom seat, carry-on and checked baggage, and priority boarding.

Hot Tip: Downloading the Breeze app from the Apple Store or Google Play will net you 500 BreezePoints!

Final Thoughts

A Charleston-to-Charleston route is certainly intriguing, connecting one of the most popular destinations in the South with West Virginia, home to many colleges and outdoor activities. As Breeze continues to expand, we’ll be on the lookout for new routes from the airline!
