July 12, 2023

Breeze Airways is helping travelers stretch their dollars, their legs and their summer vacation with the debut of its “Stretch it Out” promotion, offering sale fares starting at $39* one way on 11 routes from Richmond, for travel between August 9 and August 29, if purchased by July 17. Breeze is also offering the opportunity to buy a Nicest fare bundle for just $1** more than Nicer, for travel in Ascent so Guests can also stretch out their legs in a roomy, recliner seat with 39 inches of seat pitch.

According to the Transportation Security Administration, summer travel made a major comeback over the July 4th weekend with Friday, June 30 recorded as the busiest day ever for the agency with almost 2.9 million passengers processed at security checkpoints nationwide, beating the previous record on Thanksgiving Sunday 2019. But, just as summer is hitting its stride, many Americans state that rising costs are putting a damper on travel plans.

“Summer vacations are what memories are made of but, with one in four people saying that inflation is making travel too expensive, those coveted vacations can quickly move to the bottom of the list.” said Breeze Airways President Tom Doxey. “Luckily Breeze is making vacation dreams a reality with sale fares starting from just $39* out of Richmond. Combined with no change and cancelation fees and free family seating, Breeze is giving our Guests the best possible option for stretching out their dollars this summer.”
