Breeze Airways Launches Service at TUL

TULSA, OK – June 4, 2021 – Breeze Airways today launched service from Tulsa International Airport, with nonstop service beginning to Tampa International Airport. The service to Tampa is one of three new destinations that Breeze will serve from Tulsa, with nonstop service to New Orleans and San Antonio beginning on July 15. All three markets will be served year-round, and to celebrate, the airline is extending its $39* fare offering to customers on the Breeze app or at www.flybreeze.com.

Tulsa will launch as the fifth of the initial sixteen cities in the Breeze route network. Breeze is the fifth airline founded by aviation pioneer, David Neeleman, who previously started JetBlue Airways, WestJet, Azul, and Morris Air. The airline will be the seventh currently serving the Tulsa market.

“Breeze is excited to be announcing service from Tulsa,” said David Neeleman, Founder and CEO of Breeze Airways. “There are a significant number of unserved markets from there that will provide us with many years of growth opportunities. And we’re thrilled to be able to give Tulsa residents nonstop service so they can get where they want to go twice as fast for half the cost.”

Branded as the new “Seriously Nice” U.S. carrier, Breeze Airways will operate 13 single-class Embraer aircraft this summer, flying routes with an average flight length under two hours.  The ten E190 jets will be configured to seat 108 Guests while the three E195 aircraft will have 118 seats.   Guests may choose from fares that include ‘Nice’ seats, or ‘Nicer’ seats with extra legroom. All Embraer aircraft will be a two-by-two seat configuration, so there are no middle seats. Breeze will start taking delivery of 60 brand new Airbus A220 aircraft, beginning in October of this year, expanding the network nationwide. The A220s will include a premium cabin, called ‘Nicest’ seating, in a two-by-two configuration at the front of the plane. The remainder of the aircraft will feature a two-by-three seat configuration.

“We are thrilled to have Breeze launching service here in Tulsa,” said Andrew Pierini, Director of Air Service Development and Marketing at Tulsa International Airport. “Tampa, New Orleans, and San Antonio were three of our top fifteen unserved markets, so we are excited for Tulsans to now have nonstop options when traveling to these destinations.”
