Breeze Airways launches 5 destinations from Provo/Salt Lake City

Breeze Airways announced a new selection of routes to Provo, Utah on the same day Provo Airport officially unveiled its new $55 million terminal. The carrier will offer daily service to Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Bernadino, San Francisco and Westchester.

Breeze Airways arrives in Provo

Breeze Airways will launch five daily routes from Provo Municipal Airport (PVU), with its first flights beginning August 4. The Utah-based airline will base four aircraft in Provo and serve East Coast and West Coast destinations.

The new destinations are:

  • Las Vegas, NV – Harry Reid International Airport (LAS) – October 5.
  • Los Angeles, CA – Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) – November 2.
  • San Bernardino, CA – San Bernardino International Airport (SBD) – August 4.
  • San Francisco, CA – San Francisco International Airport (SFO) – August 4.
  • Westchester / White Plains, NY – Westchester County Airport (HPN) – October 5.

The airline’s flights between Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Francisco will be nonstop, while San Bernardino and Westchester will be one-stop “BreezeThru” flights. BreezeThru flights involve a quick stop at an airport where passengers will stay on the same plane.

David Neeleman, Founder and CEO of Breeze Airways, said:

“That’s been the question on everyone’s lips since we opened our offices in Cottonwood Heights – when are you leaving Utah? We’re excited to continue growing and hiring from here, and now flying from here. The airport will provide our customers with a quick and easy way to get to both coasts.”

Breeze will deploy its Airbus A220 fleet on flights to Las Vegas and Los Angeles, while its Embraer E190 jets will serve San Francisco. Flights from San Bernadino will pass through San Francisco, while flights from Westchester will pass through Las Vegas.

One-way fares will start at $29 for Las Vegas, $39 for Los Angeles and San Francisco, $49 for San Bernadino and $89 for Westchester.

New terminal at Provo Airport

Provo Municipal Airport began construction on a new $55 million terminal in 2019 and officially unveiled its new facility on Friday.

Lukas Johnson, Commercial Director of Breeze Airways, said:

“It’s a beautiful building and the city and the whole region have done a great job supporting this service.”

The state-of-the-art 75,000 square foot terminal currently features four gates with the option to expand to 10 gates.

Neeleman added,

“We’re a Utah-based operation, and it’s really great to be able to expand service here. Hats off to Mayor Kaufusi for having the foresight to build the new terminal. We couldn’t have gone there without the new investment.”

Competition for Allegiant Air

Breeze Airways will compete with Provo mainstay Allegiant Air, which will also serve Las Vegas and Los Angeles. A few weeks ago, Allegiant Air announced that it would base four planes in Provo starting in November as part of a new $95 million base.
