“As Breeze Airways continues to expand, we are thrilled they have chosen to begin service from Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport to the exciting cities of Las Vegas and Tampa,” said Clay Williams, Gulfport-Biloxi international Airport Executive Director. “Having additional affordable nonstop options will also provide convenient access for visitors from Nevada and Florida to enjoy the many amenities of the Mississippi Gulf Coast.”

“Breeze Airways continues to offer Tampa International Airport’s travelers new and exciting nonstop options, this time to the fun-filled gulf coast of Mississippi,” said Tampa International Airport CEO Joe Lopano. “This flight to the Gulfport-Biloxi region is the latest example of Breeze’s commitment to TPA, which has served as a key base for the airline since its inaugural flight from here in 2021.”

“The JobsOhio Air Service Restoration Program, aligned with local partnerships, has assisted Breeze Airways’ continued growth in Ohio,” said JobsOhio President and CEO J.P. Nauseef. “The new, round-trip flight from Akron-Canton to Raleigh-Durham makes them the largest carrier at the airport while providing Northeastern Ohioans more options for leisure and business travel.”

“We are thrilled to announce new, nonstop service to Raleigh-Durham from CAK, a route that will provide Northeast Ohio with even more convenient and efficient travel options, said Ren Camacho, Akron-Canton Airport President and CEO. “This route exemplifies Breeze Airways’ commitment to expanding connectivity and enhancing the passenger experience to unique, in-demand destinations.”

“RDU is excited to welcome another new nonstop destination from Breeze Airways, one of the airport’s fastest growing airlines,” said Michael Landguth, president and CEO of the Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority. “Breeze continues to expand at RDU to provide Triangle travelers even more convenient, affordable flight options.”  

“Breeze seeks to connect cities that currently don’t have any nonstop flight options,” said Breeze Airways’ President Tom Doxey. “Now residents of Gulfport and Biloxi will have convenient and affordable service to Las Vegas or Tampa, two of the country’s most popular destinations. We’re also excited to continue our expansion from both Raleigh-Durham and Akron-Canton, connecting those great cities.”
