According to information on the company's website, Breeze provides non-stop transportation between low-served routes to the USA at affordable rates.

The airline was founded by CEO David Nieleman, who launched four carriers including Azul, JetBlue, Westjet and Morris Air. It debuted in May 2021 with a focus on the US Southeast.

How much do Breeze Airways tickets cost? Does it offer first class?

When booking a flight with Breeze, guests will be offered three price packages: Good, Better and Best.

A “good” fare means that seat selection fees can range from $10 to $40. This option does not include checked baggage, which will cost you $20 regardless of weight.

Better fare includes checked baggage and free seat selection, extra legroom, priority boarding, and a bottle of water and bar KIND.

The “Best” package provides the best services, judging by its name. Guests choosing this flight option will automatically receive a first class seat, two checked bags, priority boarding and a free snack and drink.

While amenities will vary by class and aircraft, food will be served on all flights and drinks for purchase, as well as entertainment on board. Passengers can cancel or change their flight up to 15 minutes before scheduled departure.
