Richmond, VA (October 19, 2022) – Breeze Airways, the Seriously Nice™ low-fare airline founded by aviation entrepreneur David Neeleman, is launching new service to Phoenix, AZ, from Richmond, on February 10, with fares starting from $99* one way.
From Richmond, VA:
Breeze currently serves five destinations from Richmond, including: Charleston, SC; Las Vegas, NV; New Orleans, LA; San Francisco, CA; and Tampa, FL.
“With Breeze announcing nonstop service to Phoenix from Richmond International Airport (RIC) starting in February, a great strategic partner again supports the Airport’s mission of moving people, business, and commerce to advance the Richmond Region,” said Perry J. Miller, A.A.E., I.A.P., president and CEO of the Capital Region Airport Commission. “Prior to today, Phoenix was our second-largest unserved market, thus it is with great excitement we welcome this news on behalf of our customers and stakeholders.”
“We always look forward to providing more convenient and affordable service for our Richmond Guests,” said Tom Doxey, Breeze Airways’ President. “This new route will give our Guests a faster, more convenient way to Arizona.”
Guests on Breeze may choose from three price bundles that are offered as ‘Nice’, ‘Nicer’, and ‘Nicest’. Nice and Nicer bundles are across Breeze’s fleet of Embraer 195 e-jets and Airbus A220s, while Nicest – including a First Class seat – is only available on the A220s. Guests may also choose a Nice or Nicer bundle and add a First Class seat as well. Breeze has ordered 80 brand new Airbus A220-300 aircraft, with options for 40 more.
