Breeze Announces 2 New Destinations from New Orleans: Nonstops to Los Angeles & Hartford


NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Breeze Airways, the newest, nicest low-fare airline, is adding two new destinations from New Orleans, starting in May, with nonstop flights to Hartford, CT (BDL) and Los Angeles, CA (LAX).  The new flights are seasonal summer routes through September 5 and are now on sale at introductory fares to Bradley (BDL) from $59* one way and to LAX from $99*.  Breeze now offers 143 nonstop routes between 35 cities in 21 states nationally.

“We are very happy to see Breeze add two more nonstops on top of the 11 routes they already offer,” said Kevin Dolliole, Director of Aviation for the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. “This seasonal nonstop service to Hartford and Los Angeles will provide convenient and affordable options for people to get to and from the Big Easy.”

“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. New Orleans residents can now get to Los Angeles and Hartford 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.
