Breeze Airways started selling tickets for its flights on Friday and will debut on May 27 initially in Charleston, Tampa and Hartford.
The new low cost airline founded by David Neeleman has announced one-way tickets starting at $39 since purchased until June 1st. One of the routes with the promotional value is Hartford-Pittsburgh, but only available from July 22nd.
The Breeze destination map for now includes 16 cities in the eastern and southern United States. Most non-stop routes do not have flights from competitors, one of Neeleman’s bets.
Breeze promises to simplify the air travel. Passengers will be able to cancel reservations up to 15 minutes before the flight without penalty. The airline also debuts with a mileage plan that can be used up to 24 months after purchasing the ticket.
Through the company’s app, it is possible to customize your flight and arrange baggage handling (from $20 via the app or $50 at the airport) and choice of seat (from $10 to $50, depending on the class).
If the customer does not use the smartphone for check-in and needs to issue it at the airport, a fee of $ 3 per boarding pass will be charged.
Fleet of 13 Embraer E-Jets
The carrier offers two types of service, Nice and Nicer. Both have no cancellation or change fees and allow credit to be used in leisure flights within 24 months.
The Nice customer can carry a personal item while at Nicer it is possible to carry hand luggage and checked baggage. Nicer’s seats have more longitudinal space and snacks and drinks are included. Customers also have priority boarding.
Breeze is forming a fleet of 13 E190 and E195 aircraft to start operations. While the E190 seats 108 passengers, the E195 is configured with 118 seats.
The goal of the new company is to operate 39 nonstop routes to the 16 cities by the end of July.
Neeleman, however, sees potential to serve up to 700 destinations in the future. For that, Breeze will receive the new A220-300, from Airbus, from October, but whose routes are still kept confidential.
