Breeze Airway's Inaugural Flight! ✈️
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!
