Today we celebrated Breeze Airway's inaugural flight out of our beautiful new airport. The event kicked off with a press conference where Breeze announced a partnership with Brigham Young University Athletics to become their “Official Hometown Airline!”


The five-year agreement, in partnership with San Bernardino Airport, spans across nearly all men’s and women’s athletics programs and home games and includes flying BYU teams to away games and other events. 🙌


Breeze Founder David Neeleman debuted service today from Provo, UT, which now serves as the carrier’s first west coast base. Breeze will operate daily nonstop flights from both Provo (PVU) and San Bernardino (SBD) to San Francisco International Airport (SFO), with fares starting as low as $39 one-way. In addition, the airline will offer one-stop/no plane change “BreezeThru” service between Provo and San Bernardino, via SFO.


By investing in vital airport infrastructure, Provo City created economic opportunity rather than waiting for it. The new Provo Airport terminal is already growing our local, regional and state economies. We all recognize the saying “if you build it, they will come.” With the new Provo Airport terminal, that has come true in a big way!


With Breeze Airways now operating daily nonstop flights to an international airport, our forward-looking vision has opened our community to the world. The Provo Airport is already establishing a niche for vacationers who appreciate affordable, convenient travel without the hassle of layovers and connections.


Provo City proudly adopted the phrase, “Welcome Home” as our slogan. This represents who we are as a community. As we ‘welcome home’ a growing number of residents, business travelers and vacationers to our thriving city, we extend this welcoming spirit!

Rankings Matter! We all strive for excellence—with cities, the metrics range from citizen service delivery to public safety and economic viability. The national rankings Provo has earned become a bragging right because they illustrate a healthy community with a well-run local government. With the July 2 opening of our new Provo City Hall and public safety headquarters, it is the ideal time to highlight the role of government as an economic driver.



A Thriving Center For Government


Replacing our failing public safety facilities became a potentially life-saving decision as one considers 145,000 annual emergency calls now handled from our state-of-the-art dispatch center—with police, fire and emergency services all co-located for efficient coordination. Provo City is ranked as the #1 Safest Large City in Utah and we are dedicated to keeping our citizens safe and sound.

A Wide Range Of Government And Community Services


Not only is Provo City leading the nation in municipal rankings but is a regional center of government. Provo has a wide range of government and community services, many within blocks of each other, which provide for convenience, efficiency, and coordination.

Did you know that for the past 14 weeks, our dispatch center has been operating out of two locations while final work was being completed at the new dispatch center? All 911 calls were received by Provo dispatchers staffing the Orem dispatch center. The calls were then transferred to Provo for units to be dispatched.


On Tuesday this week at 9:00 am, all dispatchers were reunited in the same dispatch center located in the new public safety building. Thank you Orem for hosting us.


Welcome Home Provo Dispatch!
