Breeze Airways is approved by the DOT to fly

Breeze Airways (Salt Lake City) has received final approval from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) to begin scheduled passenger operations later this year.

Breeze Airways is planning to begin service to under-served cities using Embraer E190 and E195 leased jets. The company hopes to add Airbus jets at a later date.

The airline is a start-up of David Neeleman (below) who previously started JetBlue Airways.

 

Nordic Aviation Capital delivers a second Embraer 190 to Breeze Airways

Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC) has delivered one Embraer E190, MSN 19000055 to Breeze Airways on lease.

This is the second aircraft to deliver as part of a fifteen E190 aircraft lease agreement made with Breeze Airways.

NAC delivers first of fifteen Embraer E190 to Breeze Airways on lease

Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC) has delivered one Embraer E190, (N90NA, msn 19000070), to Breeze Airways on lease. This is the first aircraft to deliver as part of a fifteen E190 aircraft lease agreement made with Breeze Airways and represents a significant vote of confidence in the E190 and in NAC’s TrueChoice Flight Hour agreement with GE for the CF34-10E engine.

NAC is delighted to begin this new partnership with Breeze and continue its long-standing relationship with veteran aviation entrepreneur Mr David Neeleman who has a proven track record of success having founded five commercial airlines, including Azul Airlines in Brazil and JetBlue Airways. His latest venture will be based in the United States and is dedicated to making the world of travel simple, affordable, friendly, and convenient.

Jim Murphy, CCO, commented: “This announcement coincides with significant interest in the E190 worldwide. Regional aircraft like the E190 were the first to be returned to service as they are ideally suited to serve post COVID demand. This aircraft type is once again experiencing a resurgence as it allows airlines to continue to profitably service all of their pre-COVID markets and retain pre-COVID frequency. The Breeze team has vast experience with the E-Jet family, and we are excited to work with them as they begin their new airline with the E190, an aircraft type ideally suited to their exciting new network.”

David Neeleman said “We couldn’t be happier with our partnership with Nordic Aviation Capital and to take delivery of our first Embraer E190 from NAC. We look forward to a long and mutually-beneficial relationship together as well as the next 14 aircraft.”

Breeze Airways and Utah Valley University partner for new flight attendant program

Utah Valley University made this announcement:

Breeze Airways, the new airline start-up, pending FAA and DOT approval, from JetBlue founder David Neeleman, has partnered with Utah Valley University to create an innovative flight attendant training program. Breeze will hire qualified UVU students as flight attendants and will simultaneously provide them with a path to a college degree through the University.

According to program guidelines, qualified in-state, full-time, degree-seeking students at UVU will receive full tuition reimbursement, and out-of-state students can receive up to $6,000 per year.Participants must be accepted as full-time students and complete at least 30 credit hours per year to qualify. All university classes will be online.

“As we prepare the ‘world’s nicest airline’ for launch in 2021, we’re looking for student team members who will help us in that quest,’” said David Neeleman, Breeze Airways founder and CEO. “Everyone wins through this partnership. Breeze hires outstanding student team members who receive real-world experience and a college degree.”

Students must also be at least 20 years old, willing to relocate to bases where Breeze needs them, and work 15 days per month. They must be accepted to UVU before their initial training date with the airline. Other benefits include monthly salary, paid housing, transportation to and from the airport for work, and one paid trip home per month.

“UVU is extremely pleased with the Breeze Airways partnership,” said David McEntire, UVU’s dean of the College of Health and Public Service, of which aviation is a part. “It is clearly a wonderful opportunity for our students and the airline. Our college and department leaders cannot express our gratitude enough for this innovative collaboration.”

Students must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0 and complete the initial flight attendant training program in Salt Lake City before tuition will be covered. University classes will be limited during training.

David Neeleman launches Breeze Airways, formerly Moxy

David Neeleman on February 7, 2020, announced that his new airline had been officially named Breeze.

Prior to this official name, the project was known as Moxy, but that was in conflict with Marriott’s Moxy Hotels trademark.

Previously on July 17, 2018, the new entity signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Airbus for 60 A220-300s to be delivered from April 2021. It will start operations with Embraer 195s.

The new airline will be based in Salt Lake City and will serve smaller, underserved airports.
