The newcomer to the American low-cost airline market will boost its route portfolio for 2022.

From February 19, 2022, Breeze Airways will begin offering flights from West Palm Beach (PBI) to six destinations: Akron-Canton (CAK), Charleston (CHS), Columbus (CMH), Norfolk (ORF), Richmond (RIC), New Orleans (MSY).
With this latest update, Breeze Airways will serve a network of 42 routes across 18 destinations.
Most recently, in October 2021, the carrier announced that it had added a new Airbus A220-300 passenger jet to its existing fleet. At the time, David Neeleman, the founder of Breeze Airways, disclosed that the company would expand the fleet with a total of 80 airplanes of the type, all dedicated to serving the airline’s regional and long-haul operations.
Currently, the carrier operates a mixed fleet of 14 aircraft, including 10 Embraer ERJ-190s, three Embraer ERJ-195, and a single airbus A220-300 jet. The type of airplane that will be used to serve the new planned routes is yet to be announced.
