The start date of the first service will operate from 27th May between Charleston, South Carolina, Tampa, Florida and Hartford, Connecticut. More destinations will be added added each week through to the end of July.
Breeze Airways will operate 13 Embraer aircraft this summer on routes of less than two hours. They will have ten Embraer 190 aircraft with 108 seats and three Embraer 195’s with 118 seats with all aircraft in a 2×2 configuration. Breeze also has an order for 60 Airbus A220 aircraft with the first deliveries expected from next October and continuing with one new aircraft delivery every month for the next five years.
