On February 16 Breeze Airways landed in Raleigh/Durham (RDU) with nonstop flights to New Orleans (MSY), Hartford (BDL) and Providence (PVD). In addition, the airline will have new service to Columbus (CMH), Jacksonville (JAX), Los Angeles (LAX), Louisville (SDF) and Pittsburgh (PIT) beginning in May.

The first service was flight MX 332 operated on an Embraer E195 with registration N140BZ, which took off from Louis Armstrong International Airport (MSY) at 13:45 local time and landed at Raleigh/Durham Airport (RDU) at 16:23, after one hour and 38 minutes.

“Breeze has already demonstrated that it is fully committed to serving the Research Triangle region by announcing more nonstop destinations even before it will launch its first flight at RDU,” said Michael Landguth, president and CEO of Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority.

The airline will have an 1,888-seat weekly offering at Raleigh/Durham (RDU) in March. Breeze and RDU’s partnership will continue to grow as the airline looks for new options to meet demand for new nonstop service.

“As we launch service at Raleigh-Durham, we are proud to introduce new nonstop destinations from the airport at really low fares,” said Tom Doxey, president of Breeze Airways.

Breeze is the 14th airline to serve Raleigh/Durham Airport (RDU), offering customers new travel options at affordable fares.
