Breeze Airways Expands Route Options Out Of Norfolk

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
