Breeze Airways Expands Route Options Out Of Norfolk

Sign up here for our free newsletter that tells you about the newest stories, three mornings each week.

Breeze Airways, a new carrier out of Norfolk International Airport (ORF), has expanded the number of routes it currently serves, giving travelers better access to smaller U.S. destinations. Initially, Breeze will target mid-sized U.S. city pairs that don’t currently offer nonstop service.

Destinations include San Antonio, TX; Oklahoma City and Tulsa, OK; Bentonville/Fayetteville, AR; New Orleans, LA; Huntsville, AL; Louisville, KY; Akron/Canton and Columbus, OH; Pittsburgh, PA; Harford, CT; Providence, RI; Richmond and Norfolk, VA; Charleston, SC; and Tampa, FL. However, not all destinations offer one-way service directly from Norfolk.

Breeze is the fifth airline started by founder David Neeleman, the person who launched JetBlue twenty years ago, as well as three other airlines including Morris Aire, WestJet, and Azul. According to a press release issued by the airline, “Breeze will fly non-stop service between places currently without meaningful or affordable service.”

Dubbed as “the World’s Nicest Airline,” Breeze has leased 30 Embraer 195 aircraft to serve smaller markets, and 60 new Airbus 220-300 airplanes to serve the mid-sized markets. For additional information about flights and schedules, visit

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
