Breeze is not your typical ULCC. Its contrarian founder and business model separate it from other discounters. It offers a bundled price model, a premium cabin, and digital-only reservations and merchandising.
Its fares include a personal item and one checked bag. They also offer extra legroom seats and priority boarding.
It’s a low-cost airline
Breeze Airways is a new airline that focuses on point-to-point routes that are not served by other airlines. The airline offers free changes and cancellations on customized reservations. However, some passengers have reported that the airline’s service quality is below average.
The airline is a member of the TSA PreCheck program, which will help speed up your trip through security. It also offers mobile booking and an app for managing flights.
In addition to basic economy seating, the airline offers premium seats with extra legroom. The extra legroom seats are not as comfortable as standard domestic first class seats but they offer a little more room than economy seats. The airline also offers complimentary drinks and snacks on every flight.
However, the airline does not provide wifi or in-flight entertainment. You may want to bring noise-canceling headphones if you plan on working during your flight. In addition, some of the routes they serve only fly two or three times a week, so you may have to wait days before flying again if you miss your original flight.
It’s a no-frills airline
Breeze Airways is a no-frills airline that aims to fill a gap in the US market for direct flights between small, regional airports. It offers low-fare service on a small number of routes, and recently added a flight from Charleston to Tampa. It is also expanding its route network with the addition of Airbus A220 aircraft.
The airline has two fare classes: Nice and Nicer. Both fares include a free personal item (such as a purse or backpack), and the Nicer fare can be paired with extra legroom. All fares are nonstop, and seat assignments are available.
Breeze has a few out-of-the-box innovations, such as its flight attendant recruiting program that pays a portion of the cost of college tuition for those in training. But it is a young airline, and some of its ideas may not work out. Passengers should be aware of their rights if their flight is canceled due to weather or other reasons.
It’s a low-budget airline
Breeze Airways is one of the newest airlines to enter the low-cost airline market, and its route network is growing. It serves a wide range of cities with direct flights, including Charleston, Syracuse, Providence, Richmond, Raleigh-Durham International Airport, Hartford, Norfolk, and Jacksonville. The airline focuses on point-to-point routes and bypasses hub airports, making it easier for people to travel across the country.
It offers three fare bundles: Nice, Nicer, and Nicest. Guests can also buy seats a la carte. Bundles include a carryon bag, priority boarding, and a drink or snack. The airline also offers a variety of payment plans, including Uplift, Afterpay, and Zip.
The airline’s route network is expanding rapidly, and it has recently added 35 routes, bringing its total number of destinations to 77. This makes it the third largest domestic airline, behind JetBlue and Allegiant. As high housing costs drive workers to suburbs and exurbs, air service to these areas could become more popular than before the pandemic.
It’s a budget airline
Breeze Airways launched in May 2021 and is one of the newest low-cost point-to-point airlines. It flies nonstop routes from several cities in the US, including Charleston – South Carolina, Norfolk – Virginia and Tampa – Florida. Its fares are comparable to those of JetBlue and Delta. It is also a member of the SkyTeam alliance and accepts a number of different payment plans.
Unlike other ULCCs, Breeze Airways does not charge for changing or cancelling reservations. In addition, the airline offers free WiFi on all flights. You can access this through your mobile device or laptop using the airline’s app.
Breeze Airways flies Airbus A220 aircraft, which have 36 first class seats and extra legroom. These new planes will replace the older Embraer regional jets used on most of its routes. Neeleman says the A220 is a “game-changer” and offers a better experience than Boeing 737s and Airbus A320s, the industry’s workhorses for domestic flights.
