May 21, 2021

New “Low Fare, High Flex” Breeze Airways announced non-stop service from Huntsville International Airport (HSV) to Charleston, SC (CHS), New Orleans, LA (MSY), and Tampa, FL (TPA) as part of its initial air service launch. These new flights were announced on May 21 simultaneously with Breeze Airlines. Service will begin on July 15 for Charleston and New Orleans, with Tampa beginning on July 22.

With seamless booking, no change or cancellation fees, up to 24-months of reusable flight credit and customized flight features delivered via a sleek and simple app, Breeze makes it easy to buy and easy to fly.

“This is an historic moment for our community as newly launched low-cost Breeze Airways has selected Huntsville International Airport as one of their first cities," stated Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle. “Huntsville is a hot bed for economic development and Breezes’ entry adds a quality-of-life amenity to enhance travel opportunities for both leisure and business travelers in our region. This is just the beginning for Breeze, and we look forward to supporting and growing our newest airline – the best is yet to come!”

“Breeze Airways and its low-cost fares is a welcomed addition to our market,” said Mark McDaniel, chairman, board of directors, Huntsville International Airport. “With our community’s excellent innovative track record of success – Breeze will quickly become a vital and important part of our community.”

“We are very thrilled to be a part of the launch of a new U.S. airline – Breeze Airways - and chosen as one of the initial sixteen airports for its service launch,” said Rick Tucker, chief executive officer for Huntsville International Airport. “Our community will have access to introductory low fares of $39 one-way and new non-stop destinations that our passengers are eager to travel to. Breeze Airlines will offer no change fees, no cancellations fees mixed with a great airline customer service experience. We are certain that our community will respond to the new “Seriously Nice” and low fare air service by taking advantage of the flexibility offered by flying and supporting Breeze Airways.”

Breeze will operate Embraer aircraft on HSV service with the E190 jets seating 108 passengers with two-by-two configuration, so there are no middle seats.

“These 16 cities are just the beginning for Breeze,” said David Neeleman, CEO of Breeze Airways. “The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the nation’s air service have meant many secondary and tertiary markets have seen a significant reduction in flights. There are so many city pairs needing nonstop service around the country, we have a further 100 cities under consideration. Flying nonstop, Breeze will get you there in half the time, but also for about half the price!”
