Breeze Airways to Begin Service at RDU

Breeze is the Fourth New Airline to Join RDU in 2022:

Breeze Airways announced today it will begin service from RDU in early 2023. The low-fare airline will fly from RDU to Hartford, New Orleans and Providence beginning in mid-February. Breeze joins Icelandair, Avelo and Bahamasair as the fourth new airline to announce service at RDU this year.

“We are excited to be the first airport in North Carolina to welcome Breeze Airways,” said Michael Landugth, president and CEO of the Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority. “Breeze is a great fit for Research Triangle travelers who value affordable options, savvy service and plenty of perks.”

Breeze was established in 2021 and prides itself on being easy to buy and easy to fly. RDU will be the airline’s 35th destination. The routes will be flown on an Airbus A220 aircraft with up to 137 seats.

“Breeze always looks for underserved routes where we can add nonstop flights, low fares and our brand of Seriously Nice service,” said Tom Doxey, Breeze Airways’ President. “We’re thrilled to announce service from Raleigh-Durham, our 35th city, to three of our bases in Hartford, New Orleans and Providence.”

Fares on the nonstop routes start from $49* one-way, if purchased by November 21, for travel by May 16, 2023. Breeze took flight in May 2021 and has quickly expanded across the U.S. The airline’s business model centers around offering affordable fares with plenty of perks including no change and cancellation fees up to 15 minutes prior to departure, free family seating and enhanced seating options including Extra Legroom and First Class seats.  Guests can choose from a la carte or bundled options to create a travel experience that meets their needs.
