Breeze’s plan is to have an entire fleet of Airbus A220s by the end of 2024. To achieve this, the airline is removing its Embraer E-Jets from service, of which it currently has 16 aircraft.

“The A220 is the focal point of Breeze’s business model. From its largest in category windows and spacious overhead storage bins, to its incredible efficiency and being the quietest in its class, our Guests love the elevated travel experience on Breeze’s A220s,” said Neeleman.

Breeze’s CEO said that its current network of 56 destinations in 29 US states is expected to grow in the coming years, as more A220s are delivered.
