LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Breeze Airways, the newest, nicest low-fare airline, is introducing two summer seasonal routes from Louisville, starting in May through September 5, with nonstop flights to Raleigh-Durham, NC (RDU) and one-stop/no plane change BreezeThru service to Jacksonville, FL (JAX). The new flights are now on sale at introductory fares, from just $39* one way. Breeze now offers 143 nonstop routes between 35 cities in 21 states nationally.
“Breeze continues their growth in Louisville with the addition of nonstop service to RaleighDurham, SDF’s top unserved market in the East,” said Dan Mann, Executive Director of the Louisville Regional Airport Authority. “With links to both healthcare and life sciences industries in this area, this is another way SDF is helping to better connect our community. Plus, U of L fans now have an easy, low-cost option to visit Raleigh-Durham and cheer on the Cards throughout the year when they take on several ACC opponents in the area. We are appreciative of Breeze’s on-going commitment to our community and see this as another momentum builder for the year ahead.”
“Here we grow again,” said David Neeleman, Breeze Airways’ Founder and CEO. “We always look for routes that people are traveling today but can’t get there nonstop. Louisville residents can now get to Raleigh-Durham twice as fast, for about half the price!” Guests on Breeze may choose from three fare bundles that are offered as ‘Nice’, ‘Nicer’, and ‘Nicest’. Nicest bundles are only available on flights operated with Airbus A220 aircraft.
